Statement from Senator Steve Cassano on Community College Consolidation Plan

Statement of Senator Steve Cassano (D-Manchester) regarding today’s decision by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges to reject a plan by the state Board of Regents to consolidate Connecticut’s community colleges:

“Driven by the economic conditions of Connecticut, the state Board of Regents went in just one direction to try and achieve one statewide community college system. The Board of Regents could have achieved consolidation in part through a sharing of its deans and offices. The challenge to find more savings is now before them, and hopefully they’ll think local first. The beauty of Connecticut’s community college system is that it is ours, it’s local, and it’s a reflection of the people in the community.”
