I am pleased to announce that effective May 22, 2019, Greg Cook will serve as Interim Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at UW-Whitewater. He will replace Susan Elrod, who has accepted a position as Chancellor at Indiana University South Bend. Her last day on campus will be May 21.
A national search for a permanent provost will begin in fall 2019.
Dr. Cook has been an important leader at UW-Whitewater for many years. He has helped to elevate our national reputation in many areas, including his work with LEAP and Reimagining the First Year Experience. He has also played a critical leadership role in our Strategic Enrollment Planning process. I have full confidence that he will continue his outstanding service to our campus community in his new role.
