STORRS, Connecticut — The University of Connecticut voted Wednesday morning to confirm Radenka Maric as the new president.
Maric has led the school on an interim basis since February.
The UConn Board of Trustees voted during its regularly scheduled monthly meeting. Maric will be the University’s 17th president.
The new president will be introduced in a press conference when the meeting concludes.
A 50-person advisory committee was named earlier this year to search for candidates.
Maric was appointed after the departure of Interim President Dr. Andrew Agwunobi, who served in the position after Thomas Katsouleas, UConn’s 16th president, stepped down in summer 2021. Katsouleas replaced Susan Herbst in 2019.
The Board of Trustees unanimously and confirmed Maric’s appointment saying she rose to the top of a highly competitive pool of candidates during the national search. Her five-year term began immediately upon the board’s vote.
