On March 20, 2014 a group of CUNY administrators, staff, student veterans and dependents travelled to Albany to attend the first New York State Veterans & Military Families Summit. The Summit, hosted by Governor Andrew Cuomo, gathered stakeholders and subject matter experts from across the state to address issues such as Employment and Economic Opportunities, Education, State and Federal Benefits and Service Coordination. Following the full day agenda, the CUNY group gathered in the drawing room of the Executive Governor’s Mansion for a reception.
