The new Massachusetts Commissioner of Higher Education Carlos Santiago is visiting each of the 24 campuses that make up the state’s system of community colleges and state universities. At each visit he meets with staff, faculty, students, local community leaders, and elected officials.
Santiago, who came to Massachusetts as a deputy higher education commissioner in 2013, was on the campus of Westfield State University Thursday and he spoke with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.
