We have just received confirmation that the Taskforce will meet on Tuesday, March 10th at 4pm.

We look forward to updating you about the progress of the meeting. Our goal for the next meeting is to:

A. Gain re-newed commitment to moving forward with the process, including the review of faculty, staff, administration AND students THROUGHOUT CUNY and specific times to meet for the remainder of the semester.

B. Have a discussion about being more clear about prevention focused education within the policy and how it would be enforced.

Is there something you think we should advocate for? Share with us in the comments section!

To building a Greater CUNY!

Become involved! Email us at We currently have an immediate need for:

* Organizations and individuals to endorse our cause (willing to sign a letter of support)
* Organizations and individuals to join Students for a Greater CUNY as a member
* A tech-savvy person that is good with website building
* Skilled writers to chronicle CUNY's progress for the students on blogs and through campus media
* Student leaders or organizations that will facilitate setting up 3 town hall meetings within the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn, so public opinions can be heard on the draft of the policy.


  1. Thank you for all of your work! Possibly getting more populations of students involved such as men, gay, lesbian and the transgender community involved.

  2. I agree with Anonymous. While we certainly have male student representation on the taskforce, we could use another student to represent the LGBTQ community perspective.

    In fact, Jerin and I advocated for such a person and have yet to receive a response from VC Schaffer. We will certainly echo your concern at today's meeting.

    If we don't get a member on the taskforce, it doesn't mean we can't still have input from the LGBTQ community, any suggestions for groups that can help construct the policy through feedback of the second draft?

    Please let us know!
