BURLINGTON — The University of Vermont has dedicated a campus building in honoring of one of the school’s longest-serving presidents, Lattie Coor.
The Lattie F. Coor House was dedicated in a ceremony Thursday in front of the College Street building that is the administrative home of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Coor served as UVM president from 1976 to 1989. UVM officials say he spurred a significant advance in the university’s academic reputation, culminating in its inclusion in a 1985 book, The Public Ivys.
After leaving UVM, Coor served as president of Arizona State University until his retirement in 2002. That year he co-founded a think tank, the Center for the Future of Arizona, and he still serves as its chairman and CEO.MORE IN Vermont NewsCOLCHESTER — A bunch of kids in a minivan are solving twin challenges in northern Vermont:...
