Petition to pass HB1274
Attention Students, Parents and NH Taxpayers
Community colleges in NH are in trouble!
Dozens of news articles have warned the public about CCSNH administrators inflating their own salaries, laying off full time faculty and staff, exploiting underpaid adjunct professors, and spending millions on unproven software among other things during a budget deficit! We are feeling the affects of this first hand in the classroom. As engineering students this is as frightening as it is unacceptable.
House Bill 1274, will be heard Feb. 11th, 2016. This bill will establish a committee to investigate the board of administration that has overseen these colleges for the past 8 years. This is a first step in the right direction.
If you care about higher education in NH please read the news articles, we have links on our website,
Stay informed about what is going on!
We believe it is important for the State of New Hampshire to invest in higher education, confident that the investment is yielding optimum results for the citizens and the economy of the state.
It has been 8 years since the establishment of the Community College System of New Hampshire as a self-governing body. Given that length of time and recent public and private discussions about the current state of the system- academic, financial, and administrative-we believe now is an opportune time to study the efficacy of the changes in the system.
Therefore, we, the undersigned, believe that HB 1274, which calls for the establishment of a comittee to study the efficacy of changes in the Community College System of New Hampshire is in everyones interest.
