PHENOM has its largest Executive Board ever!  With diverse representation from all parts of the state and all our major constituencies, the Board is prepared to expand PHENOM’s role in the fight for affordable, accessible, high quality public higher education in Massachusetts.  As UMass President Caret said recently in a TV interview, without additional state funding, the first problem is that of access; then comes affordability and the debt crisis; and finally quality will begin to suffer.  PHENOM’s new leadership is determined to make sure that doesn’t happen!
