CUNY ADMISSIONS POLICY
ITS EFFECT ON BLACK AND LATINO ENROLLMENT:
Debate + Discussion
Monday, March 30, 6:00–8:30pm, Newman Library Building, Room 750
Recent articles, such as the one that appeared in The Atlantic in January and the report issued by the Community Service Society (CSS) in February, shone a sharp spotlight on the dramatic drop in Black and Latino enrollment at CUNY’s top colleges. The CUNY administration has sharply disputed these findings, generating heated, spirited debate in the cyber sphere. We would like to move this vital discussion to an open public forum in which all interested parties can fully and clearly articulate their positions. Toward this end, Richard Alvarez, Director of CUNY Admissions, and the authors of the CSS report, Changes in the Racial/Ethnic Composition of students at the City University of New York, will be on hand to present two sides of this story to students, faculty, high school counselors, and other interested parties.
This event is free and open to the public
Contact Person – Dr. Arthur Lewin 646-312-4443 or Arthur.Lewin@baruch.cuny.edu
This event is brought to you by concerned faculty and students of Baruch College and the City University of New York.
