Event Details

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, May 26th at 12:30pm for an important conversation about CUNY and the future of public higher education with Corey Robin, professor of political science at Brooklyn College and the author of “The Pandemic is the Time to Resurrect the Public University,” a recent essay in The New Yorker.

Professor Robin observes, “Like other public colleges and universities, CUNY is a mustard seed of intellectual life, a source of reinvention and renewal. If we are to endure this crisis—and, later, to learn from it—some of our most original thinkers and leaders will come from schools like City College.” Read the piece here.
