Students for a Greater CUNY

Dear Friend,

It is my pleasure to send this letter of endorsement to have CUNY adopt a sexual assault policy. On behalf of the Student Optical Society, you have our backing in this current and hopefully future challenges. We have been around for the past 40 years helping those that have been through the Ophthalmic Dispensing program at New York City College of Technology. By the means of tutoring, guest speakers, trips to different opticianry labs, and networking amongst students and alumni we have been able to address many of our student’s concerns while seeking expert advice to solve these issues. Just as we believe vision is very important, we can not close our eyes and become blind to this serious issue concerning CUNY and the importance of having a sexual assault policy mandated. We look forward to assisting where applicable.


Selah Brown, President of the Student Optical Society
