On Saturday, March 7, Dean John Mogulescu joined CUNY Chancellor Felix V. Matos Rodriguez in Albany, NY, along with other CUNY college presidents for the SOMOS El Futuro Conference that brought together CUNY and legislative leaders from all parts of New York City.
During the lunch hosted by the Chancellor, Speaker of the New York State Assembly Carl Heastie, Assemblywoman Catalina Cruz, and New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams spoke of the education they received at CUNY, and how the university has played a part in their roads to public service.
CUNY SPS students Jacqueline Lobo, Bonaparte Pierre, and Marilyn Ridley joined Dean Mogulescu for the lunch and had a chance to meet other CUNY students, the Chancellor, as well as other CUNY college presidents.
The SOMOS conference “empowers youths with scholarships that encourage furthering their education; college internships to promote retention; and apprenticeships to introduce newly graduated adults into the public, non-profit, labor, and private sectors. The organization aims to create opportunities for Hispanic youth that will facilitate their professional development, growth, and future success.”
