Community Reception Held for New Chancellor
FEB. 25, 3005--A community and campus reception will be held on March
14, for Dr. Don Betz, who was recently named the 12th chancellor, not
including interim chancellors over the years, for UW-River Falls.
A reception will be from 10:15 to 11:45 a.m. in the Falcons Nest of the
Hagestad Student Center. Refreshments will be available.
During brief remarks at the start of the ceremony, Betz will be introduced
by Terry Brown, chair of the chancellor’s search and screen committee.
UW System President Kevin Reilly and Interim Chancellor Virgil Nylander
also will speak.
Betz will be joined in the morning’s activities by his wife Susanne.
Betz is the provost and vice president for academic affairs at Central
Oklahoma University, Edmond, Okla. He was named chancellor in February
by the UW System Board of Regents after a nationwide search following
the death last year of Chancellor Ann Lydecker.
Dr. Betz will assume his new role at UW-RF on July 1.
