Connecticut System Freezes Hiring AgainFebruary 16, 2017 |

The state’s largest public college system is freezing all hiring for the third year in a row.
Connecticut State Colleges & Universities President Mark Ojakian is issuing an immediate hiring freeze for the system’s 17 schools and its central office, a spokeswoman said.
The freeze is in response to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s proposed budget, which would cut the state’s block grant to the college system by 4.5 percent.
