SUNY STUDENT ASSEMBLY PRESIDENT AND SUNY TRUSTEE MARC J COHEN’S STATEMENT ON THE SUPREME COURT’S DECISION UPHOLDING AFFIRMATIVE ACTION
“One of the most enriching aspects of our college years is exposure to diversity. The world is a melting pot of races, cultures, and lifestyles. As SUNY students we are privileged to attend some of the most diverse campuses in the nation. We learn, celebrate, and grow together.
The Supreme Court’s decision to support that diversity only serves to reaffirm inclusion as a core part of our shared values. Higher Education is a resource that should be available to everyone, especially the most vulnerable members of our society. We are looking forward to a future that is more diverse and accepting than ever before.”
