To the UConn Community:

As you may know, President Katsouleas made the decision to step down and return to the faculty, and the board supported that decision.

Looking forward, as a board, we are committed to ensuring a smooth leadership transition that allows UConn to maintain its forward momentum while minimizing any disruption. The continued success of our students, faculty, and staff is our highest priority, along with high-quality patient care at UConn Health and active engagement with our many alumni.

At the next regularly scheduled meeting of the board, which takes place on May 19, we will vote to appoint an interim president. We will announce the selection to the university community that day, following the vote.

UConn is fortunate to have a strong and experienced leadership team who will continue to work together, with the interim president, and with the board to guide our university forward.

Daniel Toscano (’87)
Board of Trustees
University of Connecticut
