Patrick unveils funding for buildings at state colleges
Governor Deval Patrick kicked off a week-long round of appearances at state colleges and announced hundreds of millions in funding for higher education building projects. The money includes $607 million for the University of Massachusetts system and $20.7 million for Roxbury Community College. Patrick visited UMass Boston and RCC today. His choice of RCC -- where state and US regulators are investigating a panoply of management issues -- as the starting place for his appearances was intentional, said Secretary of Education Paul Reville.
