Inside City Hall - CUNY Open Admissions and Standards (1998)

This 1998 excerpt from NY1's Inside City Hall features brief news coverage on proposed state funding for CUNY as well as a roundtable discussion in response to recent city government proposals relating to remediation and admissions standards at the university. Among those participating on the panel are Sandi Cooper, John Calandra, and James Traub.

During the 1990s, CUNY faced increased attacks at both the state and city levels. Budget cuts from the state threatened the university's ability to continue its previous course offerings, while city officials sought to upend CUNY's admissions standards and remediation programs.
