Report of the Citizens' Commission on the Future of the City University of New York

In November 1969, CUNY's Board of Higher Education formed and tasked the Citizens' Commission to "study the future of the University in all its aspects." Their analysis resulted in the creation of an extensive report in 1971 that detailed the group's findings and recommendations. This section of that report is focused entirely on the university's funding. While funding had been a contentious topic in prior decades, the report's publication came at an especially trying time for CUNY as the rapid implementation of Open Admissions in the prior year placed new demands on the university, and the full effects of the city's decade-defining fiscal crisis were yet to be felt.
