UConn’s 10-year growth plan being scaled back -JACQUELINE RABE THOMAS, Connecticut Mirror

The acceptance letters have been mailed and enrollment at the University of Connecticut is set to increase next year, but the school's president warns she may not have the money to hire the necessary faculty. We are preparing for the worst," UConn President Susan Herbst told her governing board Wednesday. "There was talk earlier all about the faculty hiring we are doing: That's not happening because we may be facing a $40 or $50 million operating deficit." The hiring and enrollment initiatives were part of a 10-year, $2.1 billion plan proposed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and adopted by state legislators in 2013. That plan – dubbed Next Generation – would increase enrollment at the state’s flagship university by 30 percent and full-time faculty by 259.
