The Board of Regents will vote on a proposal that would dramatically restructure Connecticut’s community colleges later this week.
This hour, Mark Ojakian, President of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system, joins us in studio to discuss the consolidation plan. It proposes merging CT’s 12 community colleges into a single Community College of Connecticut.
The school system is in a financial tough spot, and Ojakian’s office says the consolidation plan will save millions without impacting students.
We hear from students, faculty, and staff. What are their concerns about how the proposed merger could affect their campuses?
Do you work or study at a Connecticut community college or state university?
