The head of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system has proposed a "Student First" plan to direct more resources to teaching and student services, but the plan is drawing fire from 15 Faculty Senate presidents and union leaders. They released a group statement about the plan saying a 15-page PowerPoint Presentation was completely lacking in details about how savings would be achieved.
The system is facing a $35 million deficit for the coming fiscal year.
System President Mark Ojakian has scheduled a listening tour of all 17 campuses to hear from students and faculty. He will be at Western Connecticut State University April 20th at 9 am.
