Connecticut now has a consolidated statewide community college in the form of CSCC — Connecticut State Community College. As predicted it is a huge, hierarchical, bureaucracy that daily fosters confusion.
Imagine if you will a virtual storefront dedicated solely to aiding those who enter. But upon entry you find yourself in an endless bureaucratic maze, bounced from one government functionary’s desk to another.
For 16 years I have been a full-time faculty member at Three Rivers Community College. For 22 years I was a practicing attorney, mostly in corporate litigation. As an attorney I was involved in numerous business start-ups, expansions, acquisitions, divestitures, spin-offs, reorganizations, mergers, consolidations, down-sizing and shutdowns. Never have I witnessed a debacle like the One College proposal for consolidating the Connecticut community colleges.
