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.
