Show Your Support for SUNY - and Hudson Valley

New York State's legislative session is in full swing, and for the first time ever, you can go online to show your support for Hudson Valley Community College's budget priorities for the 2006-07 state budget. is an online advocacy tool that will allow you to identify your state representatives, learn more about the State University of New York's priorities for the 2006-07 budget, and e-mail your concerns directly to your local legislators and other state and federal representatives.

The Web site offers details about SUNY's budget priorities for its community colleges, which include:
  • Increased funding for base aid. The SUNY proposal would allow the state to meet its traditional one-third share of funding, which requires base-aid funding of $2,600 per full-time equivalent (FTE) student, or $150 per FTE above the Executive Budget's $100-per-FTE increase.
  • Supplemental aid for high-need, high-cost programs in nursing, allied health, engineering and other technical programs. The college is suffering from a very large revenue gap on many programs, and is unable to expand the programs despite workforce shortages and student waiting lists.
Visit, click on "Increase State Funding for SUNY Community Colleges," and reach out to your state legislators to remind them how important Hudson Valley Community College - and the whole State University system - is to you and all New Yorkers.
