I’m pleased to announce that Dr. John Chenoweth, Dean of the College of Business and Economics, will serve as interim Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. Dr. Chenoweth will begin his new duties on Sept. 9. An interim dean for the college will be announced in the coming days.
Dr. Chenoweth has been a well-respected member of our university community since he joined the faculty in 2002. He has served as a faculty member, department chair and associate dean. Since 2014, he has been dean of the largest AACSB-accredited business college in Wisconsin.
Among his many strengths, Dr. Chenoweth has a deep understanding of our university, its degree programs, critical budget issues, and its students, faculty and staff. I know he will provide outstanding leadership for Academic Affairs and the university as a whole. He will serve in this role until I return to the position of interim provost.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Chenoweth, and welcome him to this new role.
