The University of New Haven has named Sheahon (Shay-Un) Zenger, Ph.D., as its new director of athletics and recreation.
Zenger joins the University at an exciting time in its history. Earlier this year, the University announced that The Charger Challenge, the University's inaugural comprehensive campaign, which was launched as a precursor to the University's Centennial in 2020, exceeded its original goal of $100 million. The milestone, which does not include more than $28 million in federal and state contracts that have also been secured during the campaign, was reached almost a year in advance of the start of the 100th year, leading the University to increase its campaign goal to $120 million to raise additional funds for, among other priorities, athletics. According to President Kaplan, continuing to build the athletics program will help advance the momentum that has taken place on campus.
