President Bonina's Op-Ed & Other 4Cs Media
On the eve before Thanksgiving, the  New Britain Herald and  Bristol Press ran an op-ed by 4Cs President, Bryan Bonina, on inequities present in CT's public higher education. President Bonina highlights the inequities of spending on student instruction and student services within the State of Connecticut, as well as the overuse of part-time staff as a cost-savings mechanism. 


Also, as part of Campus Equity Week at the end of October, the 4Cs reached out to media to discuss the plight of our part-time staff, which resulted in a recent article in the Connecticut PostDanbury News Times, Stamford Advocate, and Greenwich Time, Adjunct profs hoping to fare better in the future.
