Vincent Inaugurated as HWS President
Joe Lasky • Oct. 29, 2017
Dr. Gregory Vincent was inaugurated Saturday as the 27th president of Hobart College and 16th president of William Smith College, in front of a packed house at Trinity Church in Geneva. The 1983 Hobart graduate says he’s grateful to be able to come back and serve his alma mater.
Vincent also says it’s his job to make sure HWS students continue to make their marks on the world.
Vincent took the reins as president of the colleges back in July from the retiring Mark Gearan.
