Chancellor’s Research website is online; listening sessions continue


A new website was started to cover news about the search for the next University of Wisconsin-Madison chancellor.

The site includes a job flyer, a research timeline, details of the Search and pre-selection committee, Informations 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 held at Marquee room at Union South, 1308 W. Dayton St. All sessions can also be watched virtually by joining the livestream 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.
