Suresh Garimella took over as the president of the University of Vermont in July. We're talking to him about what he sees as the biggest challenges facing Vermont's largest university, and for his perspective on the national trends in higher education — like shrinking enrollment, rising costs and struggles with affordability — that are plaguing schools of all sizes.
Garimella took over the top UVM job on July 1, 2019. Previously, he was the executive vice president for research and partnerships (as well as a mechanical engineering professor) at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
