New UConn President Plans Open Office Hours

STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ The University of Connecticut’s new president says she plans to schedule open office hours for visitors at least once every two weeks.

Susan Herbst told UConn students, employees, alumni and supporters in an open letter that she welcomes “your bold ideas, your critical assessments and your perspectives about our past and future.”

Herbst was appointed last month as UConn’s 15th president and starts the job in July. She is currently executive vice chancellor of the University System of Georgia, overseeing academic programs for Georgia’s 35 public colleges and universities.

Interim President Philip Austin has led UConn since Michael Hogan left last spring to become president of the University of Illinois.
