Seabury Chapel


Guest Speaker Gregory Woodward
President, University of Hartford
"Elevating the Soul: Learning & the Aesthetic Experience"

Gregory S. Woodward, a native of West Hartford and UCONN graduate, became the University of Hartford's sixth president last July.  A composer, musician, athlete, and scholar, he has spent nearly four decades working in almost every conceivable role in higher education.  


Earning a Doctor of Musical Arts from Cornell, Mr. Woodward earned his Master's degree from Ithaca College where he subsequently served for more than 30 years as a music professor, Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs, and Dean of the School of Music.  He created the first general education core in the college’s long history, built 19 new graduate programs, and grew both the music school and graduate programs to their all-time highest enrollments.

From 2012-17, he served as the President of Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Under his leadership, the college enjoyed the highest retention and graduation rates in its history, received its largest philanthropic gifts, enrolled the highest number of students from underrepresented groups, and funded its largest-ever endowment.  He also guided the fundraising for and execution of a newly constructed $43 million Science Center, a $2 million Center for Nursing Studies, and a $15 million Career and Welcome Center.  


While a student at Hall High School in West Hartford, Mr. Woodward played in a jazz band and studied saxophone privately with Jackie McLean, the great American jazz saxophonist.  He also played Division I soccer as a college student and spent many years coaching the sport throughout upstate New York.  He is married to Penelope, a decorated public school music teacher, and they have three adult children.



9:30AM: The Presenters of our scheduled courses will be available in Seabury's chapel to share information and answer questions while we socialize and imbibe in the pastries and coffee prepared by the Seabury staff. 


10:30AM: Staying in the chapel, we'll have a short business meeting and then listen to our guest speaker.  The meeting will conclude at noon.


As usual for special events, parking is available at the Chinese Baptist Church (previously the Beth Hillel Synagogue) adjacent to Seabury.  Shuttle service between the church and Seabury's main entrance will be available starting at 8:30.  Please park in the rear of the church's parking lot to minimize any inconvenience to people visiting the church.  


Seabury is pleased to offer parking for all ALP classes at the convenient Hilltop Parking Lot at the north end of our campus (near the raised garden beds and pickleball court). After parking, ALP members may enter Door 18, near the fitness center where there will be signs to direct you to your classrooms. Park in unnumbered spaces only.

For special events like the preview meetings or annual meeting, we will continue to provide shuttle service to Seabury's Main Entrance from the parking lot at the Chinese Baptist Church adjacent to Seabury. 

If you have difficulty walking from the Hilltop parking lot to your class, use the parking lot by the new chapel on your right as you enter Seabury. Then take the short walk to the main entrance. Valet parking is no longer available.

There is NO PARKING along the curb across from the main entrance. You will be ticketed!
