View open meeting of Special House Commission

A message from President Di Pasquale, Jan. 12, 2012

I was very pleased to host the Special House Commission to Study Public Higher Education Affordability and Accessibility, chaired by Rep. Frank Ferri, at the Community College of Rhode Island Knight Campus in Warwick on Nov. 15. Capitol TV filmed this open meeting where members of our administration showcased many important institutional initiatives that benefit our students.

The commission, which also visited the University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College, was impressed with our presentation. All of the comments that I received after the visit were extremely complimentary.

For those who couldn’t be with us on that day, I want to share our presentation to the Commission. I hope you find it informative and insightful.
