Dear UW System Faculty, Staff, and Students,
On behalf of the Board of Regents, and following an intense national search process, I am very pleased to introduce the next University of Wisconsin System President to you … Dr. Ray Cross.
I invite you to read the UW System news release , and to tune in to the press conference, to be live web streamed from Milwaukee Friday morning ( Jan. 10 ), at 9 a.m.: http://www.uwex.edu/ics/stream/event.cfm?eid=78540 .
Among a strong pool of candidates from across the country, Dr. Cross rose to the top as an exceptional leader with the knowledge, skills, and vision needed to take the UW System to the next level of excellence. In his current position as Chancellor of UW Colleges and UW-Extension, Dr. Cross is both well-known and highly regarded for his steadfast commitment to expanding quality public higher education opportunities, facing challenges head-on.
I look forward to working with Dr. Cross as he assumes this vital new leadership role for the UW System. I have every confidence he will represent you effectively — working with you and our many stakeholders to build on the UW System’s renowned tradition of excellence.
Chair, President of the UW System Regent Selection Committee
