Panel for Educational Policy

The Panel for Educational Policy (PEP) consists of 13 appointed members and the Chancellor. Each borough president appoints one member and the mayor appoints the remaining eight. The Chancellor serves as an ex-officio non-voting member. The PEP is responsible for electing a chairperson from among the voting members.

All monthly PEP meetings are live-streamed and recorded. View the meeting video recordings.  They are also available below in the drop down menus.
