Save the dates: Public forums for dean of students finalists

April 16, 2019 By Käri Knutson

Five dates and times for presentations by finalists for dean of students have been set.

Finalists will visit campus over the next few weeks to interview and meet with faculty, staff and students. Open forums will be held:

  • Tuesday, April 23, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Memorial Union
  • Thursday, April 25, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Union South
  • Friday, April 26, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at 159 Education Building
  • Tuesday, April 30, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Memorial Union
  • Wednesday, May 1, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Memorial Union

Information on each finalist will be made available 48 hours prior to each presentation on the Student Affairs search website. A reminder of forum events and the availability of finalist information will be published in a future Inside UW.

The search for a new dean of students launched in December 2018. The 20-member search committee charged by Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Lori Reesor was co-chaired by Lauren Papp, professor and associate dean in the School of Human Ecology, and Billy Welsh, chair of Associated Students of Madison.

Former Dean of Students Lori Berquam left the role in August after more than a decade to begin a fellowship through the American Council on Education. Argyle Wade is serving as interim dean.
