The following is an announcement from T. Clark Saunders, Associate Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies:
I am pleased to announce the appointment of Christopher M. Standish as Director of the Office of Sponsored Programs. Chris is no stranger to the University of Hartford, having served previously as the Assistant Director of Grants and Contracts from 2008-2012. Chris has, for the last 7 years, served as Director of the Center for Research and Scholarship at Quinnipiac University. In that position he successfully supported faculty and staff who were seeking external funding for research. He also oversaw federal and state academic grants and contracts and served on the Academic Integrity Board as well as the Research Policies Committee. It is clear to me that Chris will bring great expertise, new methods and wonderful energy to an office that is vitally important to the University of Hartford. Chris begins his new position on September 4, 2018. Let us congratulate Chris and welcome him back to the UHART.
