Representing Western Connecticut State University and acting as the voice of our students, Dr. Singh attended the joint session of the General Assembly on opening day in Hartford.

“Here at the Capitol among allies and supporters,” Dr. Singh said, “here to express our gratitude for their contributions and guidance as they represent our most important constituency — students and families who aspire to change their lives through education — we at Western are dedicated to seeing that aspiration realized and will always advocate for our students. They are the future, and we are so proud to help shape that future, serving our communities and making a positive impact every day.”
