NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) – The board of trustees for the Connecticut State University System plans to vote on a proposal that would freeze the wages of management and nonunion employees for another year.

The board also will vote on a measure that would put it on record as supporting keeping tuition at current levels at all four schools in the CSU system through the 2011-12 school year.

There are more than 36,000 students attending the four universities, where tuition runs about $8,000 a year for instate students.

In July, the board rescinded raises of up to 10 percent for top management, including the four university presidents and the system’s chancellor after a public outcry from state officials, including Gov. M. Jodi Rell.
