State Appeals Court Backs CUNY on Pathways

June 10, 2015

A New York State appeals court on Tuesday unanimously found that the City University of New York was within its rights to adopt its Pathways program, which focuses on the structure of the curriculum to allow community college students to transfer with credit to four-year colleges in the system and complete bachelor's degrees in four years, Capital New York reported. Faculty members have complained that CUNY failed to meet obligations to involve professors in the process. CUNY has maintained that it did involve faculty members and that the university had the right to move ahead. The appeals court found that the university did not violate any requirements. It is unclear whether the faculty union, which sued, will appeal the decision.
