Campus Equity Week is currently underway and the 4Cs has been tabling at many of our campuses to share information about inequalities in higher education. Students have taken a great interest in the comparison of instructional and student services spending at UConn, CSU, and the Community Colleges. UConn is able to spend three times the amount of the Community Colleges on instruction and student services!
There is great enthusiasm for community colleges nationwide and in our local communities. We need to utilize this focus on community colleges for the benefit of the students we serve. Now it is the time for action!
As part of our Campus Equity Week tabling, we are asking people to sign
"Count on Me" cards
with choices of some small (and a few larger) actions they can take to actively help us in protecting the community colleges.
