Tuesday, May 24, 2016
Rochester Institute of Technology and the American University in Kosovo Foundation (AUKF) announce Sharon Y. Hart as president of RIT Kosovo. Hart succeeds Winfred L. Thompson, who is retiring later this month.
Hart will become the first woman to lead RIT Kosovo and most recently served as president of the Northern Marianas College in Saipan, located in the U.S. commonwealth of the Western Pacific.
“I am delighted to have been named by the board of trustees as the next president of this great institution,” said Hart. “I have long known about RIT Kosovo and have over the years watched its development and growth from afar.”
Hart is a graduate of Michigan State University and received her master’s degree from Indiana State University and her doctorate from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
