Save the dates: Public forums for VCRGE finalists

February 7, 2019

Three dates and times for finalist presentations for the position of UW–Madison vice chancellor for research and graduate education have been set.

Finalists will visit campus over the next several weeks to interview, present their visions of the UW–Madison research enterprise, and meet with faculty, staff and students. Open forums for finalist presentations will be held:

  • Monday, Feb. 18, from 9 to 10 a.m.
  • Friday, March 1 from 9 to 10 a.m.
  • Tuesday, March 5 from 9 to 10 a.m.

All presentations will be in the Discovery Building’s DeLuca Forum.

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

The search for a new vice chancellor to lead UW–Madison’s program of research and graduate education launched in September 2018. A 15-member committee charged by Chancellor Rebecca Blank and chaired by kinesiology Professor Dorothy Farrar-Edwards has been searching for a successor to Marsha Mailick, who retired last fall. The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education has been led by Interim Vice Chancellor Norman Drinkwater.

Blank will make the final decision on a new vice chancellor once the campus visits have been completed.
