Ojakian on tuition hikes –What a difference a day makes

March 22, former Chief of Staff to Gov. Dannel Malloy and current Board of Regents President Mark E. Ojakian stated, “I have consistently said I am not going balance the state’s financial burden on the back of our students.” March 23, he is asking for a painful 5 percent increase in tuition costs for the 88,000 students in two and four year programs at State Universities and Community Colleges.

Hey, CSCU Board of Regents: Enough is enough!

The Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education needs to take heed: Students at Manchester Community College and many other Connecticut State Colleges and Universities are livid at how their tuition has increased and critically important programs, many of which are required to graduate, are being cut.
