    President Katherine Bergeron and recent advancements at Connecticut College

    Katherine Bergeron became the 11th president of Connecticut College on Jan. 1, 2014.

The resulting vision, called Connections, asks all students to make deeper linkages between the work they do in courses, in jobs, in the community, and around the globe, in order to prepare them for leadership in an era of change: liberal arts for the interconnected world. 

    During Bergeron’s tenure, Connecticut College received the largest gift in its history to support financial aid, career education, and athletics. A $10 million renovation transformed the Charles E. Shain Library into a vibrant, modern space for teaching and learning. A new strategic plan and campus master plan are now building on that strength. In 2018, Connecticut College opened the Otto and Fran Walter Commons for Global Study and Engagement and the announced the attainment of two leadership gifts amounting to $20 million – a $10 million grant from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation and a $10 million gift from Nancy Marshall Athey ’72 and Preston Athey – that will support the renovation of Palmer Auditorium into a new and revitalized center for performance and creative research. 

    Before arriving at Connecticut College, Bergeron was dean of the college at Brown University. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Wesleyan University, Bergeron earned master’s and doctoral degrees in music history from Cornell University, and is the author of numerous scholarly publications, including two prize-winning books on French music and culture. 

    She serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of Liberal Education, the flagship journal of the Association of American Colleges and Universities; the Executive Committee of the Council of Independent Colleges, the Board of the Association of American Colleges and Universities; the Commission on Institutes of Higher Education for the New England Association of Schools and Colleges; and the Board of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra.
