This button may have been from the United University Professions' (UUP) campaign, "save SUNY." This campaign was used to fight for more funding for public universities in New York. This campaign started in 1980 and called upon it's largest membership ever, 11,500 members. UUP was created in 1973 and is still fighting for both professional's rights and university funding. 

The State University of New York (SUNY), was founded at Potsdam, New York in 1816. Since 1948 SUNY has grown to include 64 individual colleges and universities. As of 2014, total SUNY enrollment is over 467,000.
