WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (AP) _ The new president of Connecticut’s Board of Regents is expected to discuss the board’s vision for the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system.
Gregory Gray was scheduled to visit Eastern Connecticut State University on Wednesday and meet with faculty staff and students. It is part of his tour of the 17 schools that make up the ConnSCU system.
He is also scheduled to meet with the media to discuss plans for the schools.
Gray began his new job on July 1 overseeing the state’s Board of Regents, which governs 12 community colleges, four state universities and the state’s online institution.
Nearly 100,000 students are enrolled in the schools. Ninety-six percent are state residents and 80 percent live and work in Connecticut after they graduate.
