Former University of Maine Robert Kennedy has been recommended to the governor for the presidency of the Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education, according to The Associated Press.
Kennedy has served as the interim president of the board of regents shortly after leaving the University of Maine at the end of June 2011.
The Board of Regents oversees Connecticut’s four state universities, 12 community colleges and online college. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will have to confirm Kennedy before he officially holds the position.
