(UW-W press release – March 1) Chancellor Dwight Watson today announced five finalists for the position of provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at UW-Whitewater.
An 11-member search and screen committee, co-chaired by Frank Goza, dean of the College of Letters and Sciences, and Artanya Wesley, vice chancellor for student affairs, recommended the slate of finalists to Watson after a national search.
The five candidates will visit the university and participate in public forums, offering opportunities for faculty, staff, students and community members to learn about and interact with the finalists. More information on the format and the specific dates and times of the forums — as well as the mechanism for providing feedback on the candidates — will be shared soon.
