HARTFORD, Conn. – Supervision Connecticut community college system have agreed to have some more time to follow through on a plan to consolidate its 12 schools.
The original plan to create one Connecticut Community College with 12 separate campuses within a year dismissed as unrealistic by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
The Connecticut Post reports the board of Regents for Higher Education agreed unanimously on Thursday to pursue this effort more than five years.
The consolidation plan calls for the 12 colleges to be divided into three regions.
System President Mark Ojakian says that the purpose of the plan is to save money and improve the experience for the 4,900 students in the state of the community colleges.
