SUNY Requesting Increase From State

State University of New York officials have requested an increase in funding from the state, as the Legislature works to approve a 2016 budget by March. According to the request, the SUNY system, which consists of 64 schools, is seeking a 14% increase in aid, as well as approval to continue to raise tuition by $300 a year. Working with a $1.6 billion budget for 2015, SUNY schools saw a decrease in enrollment by 3.5% over the past five years, and a continued increase in tuition. Chairman of the SUNY board H. Carl McCall stated that with the increase in funding schools will be better able to serve faculty and students. If the request is approved state aid would increase to $1.8 billion dollars, and the budget for SUNY would increase to $8.8 billion.
