Statement from Joseph Awadjie, USS Chair & CUNY Trustees
"I am honored to have received a proclamation from New York City Council Member Inez Barron. With her support, students have had a more active role in university governance and shaping the quality of higher education through advocacy efforts at university, city and state levels. As I reflect upon the sacrifices made and hard-won victories achieved in the pursuit of equality and justice, I'm grateful for everyone who has played an active role in supporting the work the CUNY-University Student Senate has done over the past two years."
