Message from the Search Committee Chair
Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Colleges and University of Wisconsin-Extension Chancellor Search website!
On October 2, University of Wisconsin System President Ray Cross announced four chancellor finalists, each with extensive experience in access and outreach, which are priorities of the UW Colleges and UW-Extension.
The finalists are:
- Dr. Aaron Brower, Interim Chancellor, University of Wisconsin Colleges and University of Wisconsin-Extension, Madison, Wisconsin
- Dr. John Graham, Executive Director / Chief Executive Officer, Borough of Manhattan Community College, Manhattan Educational Opportunity Center – CUNY, New York, New York
- Dr. Mark Pagano, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Montana State University-Billings, Billings, Montana
- Dr. Cathy Sandeen, Vice President, Education Attainment and Innovation, American Council on Education, Washington, D.C.
Links to more information about the finalists are available on the Finalists page of this website.
Between Oct. 6 and Oct. 17, the finalists will participate in UW Colleges campus and UW-Extension Cooperative Extension county office visits and make a presentation about their vision for the future of UW Colleges and UW-Extension.
Finalists will meet with the Special Regents Committee and UW System President later in the month, and we expect the Board of Regents would announce the new Chancellor in late October.
