MARCH FOR HIGHER EDUCATION – Demand an Investment in Higher Education

  • Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 29, 2021, 4:00 PM
  • Meet at the fountain at the New Haven Green and the March to Gateway Community College 

We cannot ignore the problem of disinvestment in public higher education any longer. Unaffordable tuition, soaring levels of student debt, and administrators putting affordability before quality; these are all problems that we are seeing in our public systems of higher education in Connecticut and it is destroying our educational system. We must put our students’ needs first and invest in higher education!


In Solidarity.
