The Embattled Board of Regents
President Robert Kennedy was pressured to step down
It’s high drama this past week at the state Board of Regents for Higher Education. President Robert Kennedy is being pressured to step down after he mistakenly authorized twenty-one executive pay raises without board approval, and he also took a leave this summer for “professional development” -- that he spent at his home in Minnesota. We’ll get to the bottom of it all with Connecticut Mirror reporter Jacqueline Rabe Thomas and state Senator Beth Bye.
** UPDATE: Robert Kennedy resigned Friday morning.
