Review shows RCC put students’ basic needs at risk
Leaders spent on raises, scrimped on amenities
Over the past three months, the Globe has conducted hundreds of hours of interviews with dozens of sources and obtained thousands of documents, including an audit commissioned by Roxbury Community College’s trustees. That body of evidence indicates that over the past nine years, administrators made many decisions that put RCC students’ basic needs at risk. Those decisions include: giving raises while campus amenities suffered, and putting the school’s access to federal financial aid in jeopardy, while 78 percent of its students depend on it.
