University of Connecticut president Thomas Katsouleas is launching a university-wide search for a Chief Diversity Officer in the wake of the racist incident outside of Charter Oak over a week ago, according to an email sent out to students on Friday.
In Thomas Katsouleas’s brief stint here thus far, he’s exhibited an uncanny ability to voice his thoughts concerning UConn’s short and long-term future while relating personally to students and remaining open to and available for receiving feedback in ways that his predecessor, Susan Herbst, never did. Although these are promising signs of what’s to come, we must encourage Katsouleas to stay on this track for more than a mere month.
Since 1967, the William Benton Museum of Art has amassed a large, diverse collection and created various public exhibitions. UConn President Thomas Katsouleas recently announced one such exhibition slated for the 2023 academic year, as “the University of Connecticut Humanities Institute (UCHI) received a $275,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
The 2019-2020 academic year will be the first at the University of Connecticut for new UConn Foundation President Scott M. Roberts. Roberts comes to UConn from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where he served as president of the UNLV Foundation and vice president for philanthropy and alumni engagement, according to a recent press release.
