Arts & Sciences HQ named for Lattie Coor

One of UVM’s most successful and longest-serving presidents was honored in May when the administrative headquarters for the College of Arts and Sciences, 438 College Street, was newly named Lattie F. Coor House.

Coor, who served as UVM president from 1976 to 1989, spurred advances on many fronts at the university, work that helped earn inclusion in Richard Moll’s influential 1985 book, The Public Ivys. 

“I deeply appreciate this honor,” said Coor. “It affirms my very strong bond with UVM. I look back at my time as UVM president with great pride. Working together as a team, we were able to advance the quality and reputation of this extraordinary academic community, enhancing its long and illustrious tradition as we did so.”    

 After leaving UVM, Coor served as president of Arizona State University, in his home state, until his retirement in 2002. That year he co-founded a think tank, the Center for the Future of Arizona, and serves as its chairman and CEO. He is currently Professor and Ernest W. McFarland Chair in Leadership and Public Policy at Arizona State’s School of Public Affairs.
