The president of the state’s largest public college system announced a hiring freeze Tuesday to cope with mid-year budget cuts to the Connecticut State Colleges & Universities system as the state closes its budget shortfalls.
“These spending control measures are necessary given our projected shortfall for the current fiscal year and the financial pressures being exerted on all CSCU institutions,” said President Mark Ojakian. “We know it is not optimal and only intend to implement these procedures for the short-term.”
The CSCU system includes the four regional state universities, 12 community colleges and the online Charter Oak State College.
