CUNY Social Forum
The CUNY Social Forum took place October 17-19, 2008 at the City College of New York. Over 600 people attended 58 workshops and 3 plenaries at the Social Forum.
We, students, faculty, staff and alumni, of all CUNY campuses, have come together to create a more accountable, accessible, and democratic CUNY. We want a CUNY that is accountable to the students and surrounding NYC community, accessible to all New Yorkers seeking higher education, and a CUNY that is truly democratic, where students, faculty, and the community have meaningful decision-making power.
In the face of a rapidly changing New York, we want to ensure that the City and State stop the pattern of disinvestment in CUNY and in public education.
We are dedicated to making the CUNY Social Forum a space in which we can build ties between existing student groups and student activists at CUNY and strengthen these efforts.
