Students invited to apply for role in new chancellor search

January 8, 2008

The Associated Students of Madison is accepting applications for students interested in serving on the search and screen committee that will help select the next chancellor of the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

ASM will select two students to serve on the committee, which is expected to be a significant time commitment beginning from the start of the Spring semester. It will conclude when a new chancellor is selected to succeed John Wiley.

If you are interested in applying, prepare a one page, maximum, essay that addresses (a) why you feel you would be a good representative of students on the committee and (b) what qualities or attributes you think are essential for the new chancellor to have. Also make sure to include your phone number, year in school, and program.

Send the essay as an attachment to an email to Jeff Wright,; and Travis Weller, It is optional to submit a one page, maximum, resume.

The deadline to apply is noon, Friday, Jan. 18.  Late applications will not be considered.

From the applications, ASM will select a small number of students for an in-person interview. The interview will take place from 5-6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 22, in Memorial Union (TITU).

The interview will occur in front of the entire Shared Governance Committee. This is the only time that interviews will be held. If you are selected for an interview but cannot make the interview time, your application essay will be read aloud to the committee, which will then vote to select the two student representatives.

The first meeting of the Chancellor Search and Screen will be 2-4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25. If you cannot make that meeting, you are strongly discouraged from applying. Please indicate in your essay whether you are able to attend this first meeting.

If you have any questions, email Travis Weller at
