Capitol Pressroom

February 20, 2019: Connect: NY Higher Ed

Governor Cuomo’s Excelsior Scholarship program has been around for over a year. On today’s show, we’ll ask stakeholders if it’s working.

With a group of experts including:

Dr. Jim Malatras, President of the Rockefeller Institute of Government and former Director of State Operations under Gov. Andrew Cuomo;

Dr. Marion Terenzio, President of SUNY Cobleskill;

Tiffany Rush, Director of Advancement and Completion at OnPoint for College;

Keith Cushing, Vice President of Public Affairs and Research at the Commission on Independent College and Universities;

Eli Dvorkin, Editorial and Policy Director at the Center for a Urban Future;

We discussed what’s working about Execelsior and for whom. As well as how it could be improved for the most vulnerable students.
