Policy 2.01 Autonomy and Jurisdiction of the University
It is the policy and purpose of the Board of Trustees to pursue, in every possible and appropriate way, the permanent recognition, by State law and through State and City funding of The City University of New York as a separate and independent institution, with its present range of differentiated but articulated parts, and all of its current missions. (BTM,1976,12-20,008,__)
It is the policy and purpose of the Board of Trustees to preserve, enhance, and improve the University as an institution of the highest quality and standards, with a faculty and administration charged to fulfill both the general and specific missions of the University: to educate and serve the people of New York City, to constitute an urban-oriented institution of higher education, and to engage persistently in the search for knowledge and truth. It is the further view of the Board of Trustees that the maintenance of the specialized missions of the University, and specifically of its functions as an institution related to and essential to the future of the City, must be assiduously striven for. (BTM,1976,12-20,008,__)
It is the purpose of the Board of Trustees that a broad and pervasive mobilization of all elements, constituencies, and friends of the University and of its parts be conducted to achieve the above ends. (BTM,1976,12-20,008,__)
It is the resolve of the Board of Trustees that all officers and administrators of the Board of Trustees be directed, exhorted, and admonished that the efforts aimed at the survival and preservation of the University and of its separate identity and mission, and of an appropriate and essential budget from both the State and the City sufficient to meet the vital needs of all present elements of the University shall be the first priority of all such officers and administrators.
