Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of the interim director for our Waterbury Campus. Angela Brightly, associate director for Waterbury, will take on this role, beginning today, February 1.

Angela brings tremendous institutional knowledge to this position, having started her career at UConn in 1987 and serving as associate campus director for Waterbury since 1999. She previously served as Waterbury’s registrar and worked in the former College of Continuing Studies. She has also been active in professional organizations, including the New England Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (NEACRAO) and the Connecticut Association of Collegiate Registrars (CACR). She holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Mount Holyoke College.

I look forward to working with Angela to lead the Waterbury Campus while we prepare for a search for the next director. Her deep familiarity with the campus will provide a seamless transition following the retirement of Campus Director Bill Pizzuto, as he pursues the next stage of his career in local politics. I thank all of you who shared your input on the interim director appointment.

Please join me in congratulating Angela on this new role.


Carl Lejuez
Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs
