HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has named six people to the state’s new Board of Regents for Higher Education, which will oversee the state’s 12 community colleges and four regional state universities.

The board eventually will replace the trustee boards that oversee the community colleges and the Connecticut State University System.

Almost 95,000 students attend the schools. The online Charter Oak State College will also be governed by the new regents.

Malloy still has three more regent spots to appoint. The legislature will appoint four more, and the board will also include two students and four non-voting state agency commissioners.

Malloy’s appointees announced Thursday include the former lead attorney for Travelers Property Casualty, a Fairfield County financial company, the leader of Magellan Health Services and a Hartford Hospital vice president.
