CT Administrator Faces Criticism
Weeks after the chancellor of the University of Connecticut left to take over the University of Illinois, the chancellor of the Connecticut State University system is facing tough criticism from the legislature over his performance on the job.
Legislators are concerned that the chancellor, David G. Carter, runs the system in too secretive a manner involving only a handful of other administrators. For example, the chancellor for Southern Connecticut was removed without a board vote and replaced by a former colleague of Carter’s. Now, Connecticut is on the hook for two six figure salaries--one to the new and one to the old chancellor.
Carter’s salary has also increased by nearly fifty percent in recent years.
