Title: Retired Academic Administrator
Location: Union, Connecticut, United States
Jeannine Martin Upson, Retired Academic Administrator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in history and academic administration.
Ms. Upson’s love of history is what led her down the path to success. In 1986, she graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a Bachelor of Arts in history. In the following years, she attended the University of Connecticut and earned a master’s in education administration. Her primary motivator in her work was that her town of Union, Connecticut, didn’t have any sort of historical society. In response, in 1974, she formed the Union Historical Society, which is still in operation today. She continues to work with the group, though she has had many additional roles along the way.
From 1987 to 1992, Ms. Upson was the assistant to the president for administrative affairs at the University of Connecticut. She would remain at the university for the rest of her career, though in increasingly important positions. From 1992 until 1994, she was the interim director developer. Her final title before retiring in 2006 was that of the director of advancement systems. Outside of her primary roles, she has co-authored several written publications. She additionally upholds her duties as a historian to the town of Union, which she has done since 1990. As a testament to her success, Ms. Upson is featured in numerous editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education, and Who’s Who of American Women, as well as the 24th edition of Who’s Who in the East.
