Corey Ribotsky, a graduate of New York’s SUNY Stony Brook, might be quite excited about the university’s important venture, the Public Higher Education Empowerment and Innovation Act (PHEEIA). Such a project is not only seen to be important for the university, but also the City University of New York (CUNY) as well as the entire state of New York. Basically these universities are currently lacking the resources necessary for them to “achieve excellence.” The Act is attempting to implement a “fair tuition policy where revenue stays with the campuses, greater flexibility in public/private partnerships to allow campuses to provide better services for students and create new research opportunities, and relief from outdated regulations…complicating routine purchasing.”

With all of its goals, it is important to note that the main aim of the PHEEIA is to advance SUNY to its next level and also take on additional impressive faculty to add to the university’s current staff. With additional faculty the university would be able to have smaller classes which would translate into a higher quality education. This has to be good news for all of SUNY’s current students as well as nice to know for those who have already gone through the system, like SUNY graduate Corey Ribotsky.
