Ramapo, NY—The New York Community College Trustees (NYCCT) and Rockland Community College will sponsor a forum on the SUNY/CUNY Report, “Operating Chargebacks: A Critical Component in the Funding Partnership for New York’s Community Colleges,” on January 31 at Rockland Community College.
“Chargebacks” represent the expense charged back to home counties for New York State students attending a community college in another county. The issue has come to the fore in recent months regarding whether county government or towns are responsible for chargebacks.
Speakers will explore perspectives on the report on operating chargebacks including the view of local sponsors and community colleges. Panelists include:
Stephen Acquario, Executive Director, NY State Association of Counties (NYSAC)
Alexander Gromack, Supervisor, Town of Clarkstown
David L. Mathis, NYCCT Chair, Trustee Mohawk Valley Community College; Director of Workforce Development, Oneida County
Dr. Cliff Wood, President, Rockland Community College
Dr. Henrik Dullea, Trustee, SUNY; Vice President for University Relations Emeritus, Cornell University
Neish Dawkins, Student Trustee, Westchester Community College
