Finalists Named for Position of Chancellor
of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay
MADISON - University of Wisconsin System President Katharine C. Lyall has announced the names of four finalists for the position of chancellor of UW-Green Bay.
The names have been forwarded to the Board of Regents' Special Committee for the UW-Green Bay Chancellor Search, chaired by Regent Patrick Boyle, which will interview the finalists in Madison on Monday, August 6.
Other committee members are Regents Phyllis Krutsch and Frederic Mohs. The full Board of Regents will take final action once it receives a recommendation from the special committee. The vote will most likely occur during a teleconference after August 6, since the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board is not until September 6-7.
The finalists, their administrative titles and current institutions are as follows:
Karen I. Halbersleben
Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty
Buena Vista University (Storm Lake, Iowa)
William J. Lowe
Vice President for Academic Affairs
The College of St. Rose (Albany, New York)
W. Bruce Shepard
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
Eastern Oregon University (La Grande, Oregon)
Michael J. Vinciguerra
State University of New York at Farmingdale
A 19-member campus/community search and screen committee, chaired by Scott Furlong, associate professor of public and environmental affairs at UW-Green Bay, has been working since March. It submitted its recommendations to President Lyall and the Regents' Special Committee on July 19 during a meeting at UW-Green Bay.
The person chosen by the Regents will succeed Mark Perkins, who resigned earlier this year to become president of Towson University in Maryland. William Kuepper will serve as interim chancellor at UW-Green Bay until the new chancellor is named and arrives on campus.
