TUCSON — The University of Arizona plans to mark its new president’s first day on the Tucson campus since being appointed to the post.
Ann Weaver Hart will be welcomed on Monday by faculty and student leaders and a university band.
Hart has already officially taken over as the university’s 21st president and so far has been doing her job long-distance.
Hart worked previously as the president of Temple University in Philadelphia.
She replaces Eugene G. Sander.
Sander, a longtime dean of the university’s agriculture college, had served as interim president after then-university president Robert Shelton resigned to become executive director of the Fiesta Bowl.
