“Today, Governor Cuomo signed SUNY 2020 into law, providing colleges like the State University at Buffalo (UB) with the necessary tools to become a driving economic force in Western New York.
“SUNY 2020 provides a 5 year tuition plan which will allow students to plan for the future and eliminate the risk of irregular tuition hikes. This plan will also create the kind of stable jobs and economic growth that our residents have been asking for. The new capital that will be generated under this law will allow UB to produce thousands of new full-time jobs in downtown Buffalo, including new faculty and staff positions.
“With this new law, UB will continue to uphold its status as a world-class institution – providing our families with jobs and our children with opportunities to thrive in Western New York.”
