New Paltz interim president supports rational tuition bill
NEW PALTZ- Interim President Donald Christian issued the following statement about the Governor's announcement of a legislative bill supporting a rational tuition policy for SUNY campuses:
"I am grateful for Governor Cuomo’s support of a rational tuition policy for SUNY. Predictable tuition will allow New Paltz students and their families to manage educational costs and plan for their future. Additional tuition revenue will allow us to hire faculty to teach the courses students need to complete their degrees – an essential and sometimes overlooked aspect of educational access. Even with the increases in tuition provided by a rational tuition policy, public higher education in New York is extremely affordable. Nonetheless, the College is committed to directing part of increased tuition revenue towards financial aid to assure continued access to a New Paltz degree and education."
Located in the heart of a dynamic college town, 90 minutes from metropolitan New York City, the State University of New York at New Paltz is a highly selective college of about 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
One of the most well-regarded public colleges in the nation, New Paltz delivers an extraordinary number of majors in Business, Liberal Arts, Sciences, Engineering, Fine and Performing Arts and Education.
New Paltz embraces its culture as a community where talented and independent minded people from around the world create close personal links with real scholars and artists who love to teach.
