New HWS president ‘soaking it all in’

While attending Hobart and William Smith Colleges in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Greg Vincent was already sharply focused on his future.

“I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted to do,” said Vincent, the new president of Hobart and William Smith Colleges, as he sat in his new office at Coxe Hall, a place that just days earlier was occupied by his predecessor, Mark Gearan.

He wanted to be a lawyer, he said, and maybe an educator, thanks to the inspiring professors at HWS. There could even be a life in the Episcopalian ministry.

He’s done two of the three.

He got his law degree and worked in the field for many years. Later, he became a professor and a college administrator, including his most recent stint at the University of Texas where he was vice president for diversity and community engagement.
