How will the University of Hartford select its next president?
Over the coming months, the University of Hartford will conduct a global search for its next president, who will succeed Walter Harrison on July 1, 2017. The search will be chaired by Regent Kathy Behrens ’85. The full search committee, announced on Feb. 26, 2016, will be supported by Shelly Storbeck of Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, a prominent national firm specializing in executive searches in higher education.
