The Graduate Student Advocate, vol 2 no 6

This 1991 issue of The Graduate Student Advocate, the newspaper of the graduate students at the Graduate Center, City University of New York (CUNY). Published six times per academic year, it included editorials, articles, interviews, and letters covering the CUNY Budget Cuts, Graduate School Takeover, the 80th Street Takeover and beyond. "Cuomo's Budget Cutting Hits CUNY," written by Pam Donovan, and "Planned Shrinkage of the CUNY System" written by Tom Smith, offered analysies on the effects the budget cuts would have on CUNY at large while spelling out the expected specific shrinkage on various campuses. In the "Graduate School Strikes Back!" and the "Graduate Center Student Update," Tara McGann and Andrew Long detailed the ongoing negotiations between students, faculty, and CUNY administrative, which eventually led to ending the Graduate Center takeover on April 25th. The Strike Committee declared victory and committed to continue supporting the CUNY strikers. The Graduate Center Student Strike Update enumerated the 16 consensus demands, which included a meeting between the delegated representative of the strike committee and Chancellor Reynolds.
