Sacred Heart University has awarded tenure and promotions to eight faculty members. Additionally, ten other professors earned separate promotions.
Sacred Heart University engineering professor Tolga Kaya learned in January that he had just 12 weeks to train if he wanted to run in April’s Boston Marathon and raise funds for student scholarships. The opportunity came through Todd Cassler ’01 of John Hancock Life Insurance Company, which is a major Boston Marathon sponsor. Cassler also is a member of the Jack Welch College of Business Board of Visitors and, for the second consecutive year, he presented the college with a runner’s bib for the marathon. This allowed SHU to have a participant in the race without that person qualifying beforehand.
