UConn Students, Faculty Protest Proposed Budget Cuts At Rallies In Storrs, Farmington

Hartford Courant, September 20, 2017

UConn students and faculty rallied Wednesday evening to protest a Republican-proposed state budget that the school says would cut $300 million over two years and damage the standing of the state’s flagship university. Associate Professor of Philosophy Lionel Shapiro responds to one measure in the Republican budget that would require professors to teach an additional course for savings of $10.4 million, stressing the adverse consequences of the budget cuts and of the burden placed on professors to teach an extra class.
