Now a Sacred Heart Poll?!?

About a decade ago, Quinnipiac made a shrewd move to start up a Polling Institute to increase their name recognition with the public. And it certainly worked as the "Quinnipiac Poll" was cited on many nightly newscasts and in national print media outlets.

Now it appears Sacred Heart is doing the same thing.
A majority of state residents oppose electronic highway tolls but support increases with a guarantee the money raised will be spent only on roads, bridges and highways, according to a new Hartford Courant/Sacred Heart University poll. ... story.html

CCSU has the Institute for Municipal and Regional Policy (IMRP) which does a good annual report on racial profiling and recidivist. Personally, I think the institute focuses all its resources on social issues and doesn't do enough work in the on 'administrative" issues of local government, such as budget, taxes, regional cooperation, transportation, etc. - but that's a criticism for another day.

Central also has the Institute of Technology & Business Development (ITBD), which is closing down after losing too much money and will be reorganized as part of CCSU's Continuing Education. ... ew-britain

CCSU needs to step up in this area and fast!

So it sounds like Charter Oak State College is moving to the downtown building? Does this mean the Charter Oak building on campus is going to be used by CCSU?

I always wondered why Charter Oak was built in the CCSU campus! Why would CCSU give land to another institution? Why doesn’t CCSU absorb COSC to boost enrollment and scope of programming ?

In the northeast Its not unusual for a public on-line institution to be a stand alone entity. Empire State College is the on-line member of the SUNY system. Thomas Edison State University plays a similar role in New Jersey. When he was governor, Chris Christie did try to merge Thomas Edison with Rutgers, but never succeeded.

Are the NJ and NY online colleges located on the campus/property of a brick and mortar state university/college?

Is Charter Oak moving downtown? and if so is Central going to use the vacated building? and does this have anything to do with the planned parking garage on the site of the Charter Oak parking lot?

I am trying to get a feel for what if anything is going on here and if there is some sort of plan.

Can we use the building for a 3500-4000 sq ft arena ;-)

Hilltopper: if COSC does move (it's been a while coming), offices or special departments could move in there as I'm sure that CCSU has first dibs on the building. Many suggestions have come forward from alumni. So far, no ones talking. And, the new garage has nothing to do with it all.

Hoops: No. The building's not configured for an arena.
