Professionals at state universities, or SUNY schools, are calling on the state for more funding due to major deficits.

On Thursday Higher ed union United University Professions gathered in the city of Rochester. They wanted to draw attention to the deficits that SUNY schools currently face. Right now SUNY Brockport and SUNY Geneseo both have deficits of around $10 million dollars. UUP is demanding full funding for their SUNY campuses.

United University Professions President Fred Kowal explained that state leaders are “depriving SUNY of the oxygen needed for SUNY to grow, expand and create a better future for our students and indeed our communities.”

Right now the total deficits across the state for SUNY campuses are worth $155 million dollars according to News Channel 10.
