Head of Connecticut State System, Under Fire, Resigns

August 17, 2015

Gregory Gray announced Friday that he will resign, effective at the end of the year, as president of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities, a system of regional public four-year universities and community colleges. In a statement, Gray said that the move was personal. “This decision was purely a personal one, arrived at after a number of months of consideration and discussion with my family,” he said. Gray has clashed with faculty groups throughout the system and has been the subject of a series of no-confidence votes over his plans to centralize the curriculum and make more use of online education than many professors believe is appropriate for their at-risk students.
