Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will hold a news conference in Manchester to discuss the proposed “Transform CSCU 2020” initiative, which invests $134 million in the 17 campuses of Connecticut’s state university and college system to help bring them all together into a single, student-centered, technology-rich system.

After the state spent billions to transform the University of Connecticut in the past two decades, Malloy said he now wants to launch “Transform CSCU 2020” to improve the 17 universities and community colleges in the Connecticut State Colleges & Universities system. The initiative would create a systemwide operating fund. The governor is calling on the state to invest $134 million in that program.

Malloy also would offer free courses for college dropouts. Students who started working toward a degree but had not attended school in 18 months would be able to attend one free course for each course they pay for in college. The state would pay for up to three courses.
