Anne Friedman's entire professional life - from selection of academic field, to the choice of community college activism, to leadership in the union - is rooted in her commitment to higher education for the vulnerable, to higher education as a civil right.
The PSC vice president for community colleges, Friedman comes from a union family. By the time she entered college in the late 1960s, she was already active in the civil rights movement, the anti-nuclear movement and the women's movement. An undergraduate at City College from 1967-71, she participated in the historic - and successful - fight for an admissions policy that would open the college to New York's growing African-American and Latino populations.
In 1986, Friedman joined the faculty of the Borough of Manhattan Community College, where she continues today as full professor. In 1995, in response to Mayor Giuliani's attacks on the university and the community colleges, Friedman co-founded a new Community College Conference to defend the rights of the city's poorest populations to a college education.
In 2000, she ran for union office in the PSC and has been in union office ever since. She is a key member of the negotiating committee, working on four contracts. She is a member of the union's anti-racism committee, its faculty workload committee, its open access committee and, of course, the leadership of her own chapter, where her influence has been tactful, nuanced and profound.

"We seem to be living in a lawless environment, where local college presidents impose arbitrary decisions and the chancellery makes things up as they go along," said Anne Friedman, a member of the University Faculty Senate Executive Committee. Friedman noted that for her own college, Borough of Manhattan Community College, the CUNY Pathways website lists 80 courses as "approved" for inclusion in the Pathways Common Core - but only about 10% of these have been so approved by the BMCC Academic Senate.

"Some of the courses have never been put to a vote by the relevant departments," Friedman wrote.
"In bypassing governance procedures, administrators tacitly admit a truth they have tried not to acknowledge: the CUNY faculty, as a body, does not accept Pathways," commented Friedman, who is vice president for community colleges at the PSC.
"We should ask ourselves, how much control of our profession we are willing to cede to administrators," commented Friedman.
