Stony Brook Students Ask for Continued “Rational” Tuition Hikes

Rational

Stony Brook students are leading the charge to extend NYSUNY 2020 as the first students in the state to go public supporting the initiative.  Jules Mayard, Steve Adelson, Anna Lubitz, and Ramon Emilio Fernandez met with Long Island state legislators in Albany on Tuesday, March 10 to advocate for the extension of the legislation. Renewed NYSUNY 2020 legislation would allow students and families to plan for the cost of a college education in a predictable manner.

Signed by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2011, SUNY2020 enacted a rational tuition plan that allowed each SUNY and CUNY campus to raise tuition in measured steps, replacing an era of sudden tuition increases with a system that is predictable and empowers students and parents to plan for college expenses.
