The president of Connecticut’s public higher-education system has put
the brakes on a controversial plan to improve the system after faculty
members spoke out against it, The Hartford Courant reports.
Gregory W. Gray, president of the Connecticut State Colleges and
Universities, has disbanded a steering committee of mostly faculty
members charged with overseeing the plan, called Transform CSCU 2020.
Mr. Gray and the Transform plan have been the targets of several
no-confidence votes in recent weeks, as faculty members have assailed a
lack of input in the process.
