By KOREY WILSON Hour Staff Writer Dec 18, 2015

NORWALK — Terrence Cheng has been appointed as the new campus director of the University of Connecticut’s Stamford campus.

Cheng, who is currently associate provost for academic programs and an English professor at Brooklyn College, will step into his new role in January.

He will replace Dr. Sharon J. White, who will retire, effective Dec. 31.

“A twelve-year veteran of the City University of New York system, Terrence is deeply committed to supporting students, and creating a safe, diverse, and inclusive learning environment that is inviting to students, faculty, and the community,” according to an announcement from UConn officials.

In his current role as associate provost at Brooklyn College, Cheng is responsible for advisement and retention, student support, general education, honors, graduate, pre-professional, opportunity, diversity, and international programs. He has also worked closely with faculty and administration on governance, budgetary, enrollment, and fundraising initiatives.

He holds a bachelor’s of arts in English from Binghamton University and a master of fine arts in fiction from the University of Miami, where he was a James Michener Fellow. In 2005, he received a literature fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Cheng is the author of two novels, “Sons of Heaven” and “Deep in the Mountains.” He has written articles for several publications, “Bronx Noir” and “The Chronicle of Higher Education.”

Terry Reilly was appointed associate director of UConn Stamford campus. She replaced former associate director Jeffrey Dewitt.
