Michael J. Hogan, sometimes, affectionately known as "P Hoges," is an American academic who on September 14, 2007 became the 14th president of the University of Connecticut, succeeding Philip Austin, aka "Stone Cold" Philip Austin, who held the post 11 years. The University of Connecticut has campuses in Storrs, Farmington, Greater Hartford, Groton, Stamford, Torrington, and Waterbury enrolling approximately 28,000 students and with a total operating budget of $1.4 billion.

President Hogan's image is featured on six life-sized cardboard cutouts recently purchased by UConn for ca. $3500. The cutouts are placed around campus at strategic locations to make the President seem more "accessible" to the students.

Prior to his appointment at UConn, Dr. Hogan was the Executive Vice President and Provost and F. Wendell Miller Professor of History at The University of Iowa. Before his move to Iowa, Dr. Hogan was at The Ohio State University where he served as chair of the Department of History from 1993 to 1999, as dean of the College of Humanities from 1999 to 2003, and as executive dean of the Colleges of the Arts and Sciences from July, 2001, during which time the position of executive dean evolved into a separate free-standing office with oversight of five colleges and forty-one departments.
