Protect democracy at Medgar Evers: Stop the removal of students from the governance plan

Petition Statement

We demand that Chancellor Goldstein reverse this incredibly illegal action and reinstate the governance plan at Medgar Evers College.
There are currently 234 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

Chancellor Matthew Goldstein, who will be retiring as chancellor of City University of New York (CUNY) as of July 1, 2013, has illegally scrapped the governance plan of Medgar Evers College at CUNY. The scrapped 1972-ratified governance plan had 23 students that served in various capacities. This move by the chancellery and the CUNY Board of Trustees will have a disastrous effect on the democratic process of Medgar Evers College and effectively silence students' voices.
