QUEENS, NY (TIP): Queens Borough President Melinda Katz announced an allocation of $5 million of her Fiscal Year 2016 discretionary capital funds to support capital projects at all five City University of New York (CUNY) public institutions of higher learning in Queens. The $5 million in funding will enhance the educational experience for the CUNY students who attend Queens College in Flushing, York College in Jamaica, Queensborough Community College in Bayside, LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City and the CUNY School of Law in Long Island City.
“CUNY has a long history of providing a high-quality, competitive and remarkably affordable higher education that produces job-ready graduates with respected academic credentials,” said Borough President KATZ. “We are particularly proud of the five CUNY schools located in Queens. This $5 million allocation will help guarantee that the physical infrastructure of these five institutions remains top-of-the-line and fully able to support a first-class experience for CUNY’s hard-working students.”
