UW Regents to Recommend Finalists for UW-RF Chancellor

DEC. 10, 2004--A special University of Wisconsin Board of Regents subcommittee will meet Dec. 20 to hear recommendations on naming five finalists for the chancellor’s position at UW-River Falls.

The regents will gather at 12:45 p.m. in Room 140 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building on the UW-RF campus. They will be joined by UW System President Kevin Reilly.

The meeting will adjourn into closed session to hear the recommendations for finalists from a campus and community search-and-screen committee. The committee is expected to recommend finalists after having conducted preliminary interviews with semi-finalists.

The committee was appointed following the death of Chancellor Ann Lydecker last March. The current interim chancellor is Virgil Nylander.

With the assistance of a national search consultant, UW-RF received numerous applications for the position from very qualified candidates.

The finalists should be publicly announced after Jan. 1 by Reilly and will visit the campus at the beginning of February. Those visits will provide opportunities for campus and community members to meet the finalists and give the committee feedback.

Reilly and the Regents subcommittee will interview the five finalists following the campus visits and make their recommendation to the Board of Regents.

A new UW-RF chancellor likely will be named by the Board of Regents at its regular meeting on March 11.
