“While serving as acting provost, Robin has demonstrated her grasp of the issues facing higher education and has promoted a renewed focus on academics that will be critical to the enhancement of SHU’s reputation and national presence. She is a passionate advocate for the faculty, a strong leader, and a visionary,” said John J. Petillo, president of the university.

“It’s humbling to be entrusted with the extraordinary opportunity to serve as provost of Sacred Heart, an institution deeply committed to a holistic, values-based education in a way that is bold, ambitious, and relevant,” Dr. Cautin said.
