The Board of Trustees of the State University of New York says it unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday that directs Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher to coordinate with all 29 of SUNY’s four-year colleges and universities in working to find new or expanded financial aid options to help protect students who could be adversely impacted by a possible tuition hike.
The board says in anticipation of a rational tuition bill being adopted by the Legislature, each state-operated campus will develop a plan that reflects resources that are currently available, as well as additional financial aid initiatives. Campus presidents will deliver these plans to the chancellor by the end of June.
