We are pleased to announce that at its December 10, 2015, meeting the CSU-AAUP Council gave, by unanimous vote, its 2015 Quotation of the Year Award to the following statement made by Mr. Nicholas M. Donofrio, Chairman of the Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education, at the Board’s meeting in Hartford on December 3, 2015.

“Nobody argues about the need for a liberal arts base in education. I mean, everyone does have to be able to walk, talk and chew gum at some point in time – as well as whatever else they do for a living if it’s different.”
