A plan to consolidate operations within Connecticut’s State Colleges and Universities system — to save millions — has roiled staff and raised questions about how well the schools can respond to the needs of students in their communities.
This hour, we talk about the Board of Regents decision and we want to hear from you.
What do looming changes to the system mean for higher ed in the state?
We gather reactions from faculty in the state’s community colleges as well as four year institutions. And we hear from students.
Do you have questions or ideas about the future of Connecticut’s State Colleges and Universities?
