Tripathi praises Cuomo’s higher education proposals

BUFFALO, N.Y.  – University at Buffalo President
Satish K. Tripathi released this statement today in support of the
higher education proposals outlined yesterday by Gov. Andrew M.
Cuomo in his State of the State address:

“We applaud Governor Cuomo’s steadfast commitment to
higher education in New York State. As New York’s largest
public institution and an internationally recognized research
university, UB fully supports the governor’s proposal to
provide increased accessibility, affordability and excellence in
higher education.

“The governor clearly sees how higher education is
critical to economic mobility and vital to New York’s
economic success. Through the governor’s higher education
policies, like the Excelsior Scholarship program, the governor is
ensuring that the financial needs of current and future students do
not create barriers to a quality education. Access to an excellent
education will cultivate more economic opportunities for our
students and further contribute to the state’s continued
success.

“UB also strongly supports Governor Cuomo’s call for
passage of the New York State DREAM Act. Ours is a university, and
a state, committed to diversity, equality and inclusivity. As such,
we urge our state legislators to protect New York State’s
42,000 DACA enrollees. In calling for a fair and permanent solution
for DACA participants, we share Governor Cuomo’s belief that
New York’s strength comes from the diversity of our residents
and our openness to people who come here seeking to make a better
life.”
