Since being selected as the University of Vermont's 26th president last February, Tom Sullivan has made
affordability for in-state students a top priority. The challenge now for
Sullivan is finding the money that will allow the school to reach that goal.
Sullivan has been formally installed as the 26th president of the University of Vermont. Sullivan presented his vision of the university's future Friday during
a ceremony at the Ira Allen Chapel on the Burlington campus.
Monday was the first official day on the job for the new president of the University of Vermont, who held a news conference at the Waterman Building to outline his
vision for the university. Thomas
Sullivan succeeds Daniel Fogel, who resigned as president of UVM last summer
after a nine-year tenure.
Incoming UVM President Thomas Sullivan says he's deeply concerned that the U.S. Supreme Court
could soon erode the national policy on affirmative action and undermine UVM's efforts to boost minority enrollment.
A former provost and law school dean at the University of Minnesota has been appointed the 26th president of the University of Vermont. UVM's Board of Trustees says it chose Thomas Sullivan because his background and experience are compatible with Vermont's flagship institution.
