MCC Student Government Association Senate Meeting Cancelled


The MCC Student Government Association Senate Meeting for today, Tuesday, March 6, has been cancelled. 

Members of the Student Government, SEGA, Clubs and Organizations and MCC students will be attending SUNY Palooza in Albany, New York.   

SUNY Palooza is a lobbying effort in conjunction with the SUNY Student Assembly for all SUNY students.  Students will meet with Senators and Representatives at the State Capitol in Albany to lobby for a number of very important issues relevant to higher education in New York State, focusing on SUNY two-year and four-year colleges.  Students will begin the day with advocacy training and will also attend a rally with Chancellor Zimpher and state lawmakers.  They will be leaving campus at 4:00 a.m. and returning at approximately 9:00 p.m.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to express to our State Senators and Representatives how important these issues are.  Attached is a copy of the SUNY Student Assembly Legislative Agenda for 2012.  This document explains the issues the SUNY students are working on.
