Naugatuck Valley Community College Students Host Round Table Meeting with Board of Regents President

Naugatuck Valley Community College Students Host Round Table Meeting with Board of Regents President

 Board of Regents President, Dr. Gregory Gray spent the month of November taking the new Transform 20-20 initiatives on the road. With a goal to solicit feedback from students and then present it to the Board of Regents (BOR) in 2015, Dr. Gray worked his plan to meet with community college students by organizing contacts through their Student Government Association officers.  The meetings with students from the 17 CT State Universities and Community Colleges were intended to inform, rally support and produce 1,000 students to legislative budget hearings next Spring to advocate for funding. “Your voice will allow us to take the next huge step from being a good college and university system to becoming a great state higher education system,” said Dr. Gray.
