PSC-CUNY Responds to Pathways Decision

The Professional Staff Congress, an AAUP affiliate, has issued this response to a judge's decision to dismiss a lawsuit contesting a controversial new general education curriculum at the City University of New York. The curriculum, known as Pathways, waters down general ed requirements and was developed without regard for the faculty’s role in governance,bypassing elected faculty bodies.

PSC leaders say they are disappointed in the judge's ruling and are prepared to appeal it.

"We maintain that the initial Pathways resolution was passed in violation of the law and feel confident that our position will eventually be upheld," the statement says, also noting that "Nothing in the legal decision changes the terrible impact Pathways is having on our students or the importance of our collective fight for a curriculum that offers a meaningful college education."
