MADISON, Wis. – University of Wisconsin System President Kevin P. Reilly today announced five finalists for the position of chancellor at University of Wisconsin-Parkside.

A 19-member search and screen committee, chaired by UW-Parkside Professor Greg Mayer, recommended the finalists to Reilly and a special committee of the UW System Board of Regents.  Regent Mike Falbo, a UW-Parkside alumnus, chairs the Regents’ special committee.

The five candidates will participate in a variety of public forums from April 23 through May 7.  The forums will provide opportunities for the finalists to interact with faculty, staff, students, and community members.  The finalists and campus/community forums are listed below.  Information on additional student forums is available at https://www.uwp.edu/chancellor.search/.  Reilly and the Regents committee will then interview the finalists in Madison on May 19.  The final appointment of a new chancellor must be confirmed by the full Board of Regents.
