"Out of several outstanding candidates, Ms. Henry excelled as one whose abilities most accurately reflect the values of the University and the needs of the Division of Student Affairs," says E. Royster Harper, vice president for student affairs. "I am truly excited about the skills and knowledge she will contribute to the U-M community. I feel confident she can help us reach our desired goals."

Henry currently holds the title of executive director for housing and food services at the University of Connecticut. During a four-year period, she has provided leadership for an initiative allocating $1 billion for updating campus infrastructure, and completing new construction and renovation projects. New construction resulted in 3,500 additional bed spaces and two new dining centers, making Connecticut's residence hall system one of the largest in the nation.

Prior to the position at Connecticut, Henry served as director of housing and residence life at West Virginia University, director of residential life and dining services at Keene State College, and interim vice president for student affairs at Keene. Henry also has served as a hall director at Marquette University and graduate resident counselor at Shippensburg State College in Pennsylvania.

She holds a bachelor of science degree in secondary education and a master of science in college counseling/student personnel, both from Shippensburg State College. She also has earned a certificate in higher education resource services from Wellesley College and is progressing toward a doctorate in education in higher education administration from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
