Town/University Relations Committee

Co-Chairs: Michael Kirk and Elizabeth Paterson
Staff Lead: Maria Capriola (Interim Town Manager)

The Town/University Relations Committee (Town/Gown) was established in 1992 with a mission to promote and sustain positive relations between the University of Connecticut and the larger Mansfield community. The committee is comprised of representatives from both the Town and the University, and is co-chaired by the Mayor and the Special Assistant to the University President. Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meetings, and the committee always provides an opportunity for public comment.
