Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has called for downsizing and consolidation within the Connecticut State University System.

What does this mean for Western Connecticut State University in Danbury --- right now, next year, beyond that?

Will the number of faculty members be shaved? Will class sizes swell? Will tuition go up?

We talk with Malloy, WestConn President Dr. James Schmotter, and students, faculty and staff at the university to get their views.

To find out about the future of WestConn under Malloy, be sure to read our coverage Sunday, April 17, exclusively in the print edition of The News-Times.
