Chancellor’s Research website is online; listening sessions continue

A new website has been launched containing information on the search for the next chancellor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The site includes a prospectus for the position, a timeline for the search, details about the search and selection committee, information about UW-Madison and the Madison community, and other details for the campus community and stakeholders.

“We want to share our understanding of the role and its expectations broadly,” said Regent Vice President Karen Walsh, chair of the search committee. “We also want to encourage applications from the UW-Madison community.”

The Search and Screening Committee continues to hold listening sessions throughout January.

In-person listening sessions are taking place at the Marquee Room at Union South, 1308 W. Dayton St. All sessions can also be watched virtually by joining the live stream at https://www.wisconsin.edu/regents/. Virtual participants are encouraged to enter their comments in the chat box on the streaming page. Note that WebEx registration is required.

  • A virtual listening session only for community members and alumni is scheduled for Tuesday, January 25 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • The committee will organize two listening sessions to faculty members. The first will take place on Thursday January 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., the second on Friday January 28 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
  • Instructive Academic Staff will have a listening session on Thursday, January 27 from 11 a.m. to noon.
  • Two sessions for student contribution are scheduled by the committee, the first on Thursday January 27 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and the second on Monday January 31 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Sessions for other academic staff and university staff were held earlier in the month.

All students, employees, and campus visitors are required to wear masks while inside campus buildings, regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status.

Parking for in-person sessions is available in Lot 80, the underground garage under Union South, on a pay-per-ticket system.

If you are attending in-person sessions and require accommodation, please contact Carrie Olson ([email protected]) for assistance.

If you are a second or third shift employee who would like feedback shared with the committee, or if you are an English language learner who would like your comments and feedback translated and forwarded to the committee, contact Carrie Olson via email or by leaving a voicemail at 608-890-1238.
