Interim Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs named
Dear University Colleagues,
I am pleased to announce that Taryn Carothers will serve as the interim Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs beginning Sept. 19.
Taryn was hired in 2018 as the Director of Financial Services and was named Assistant Vice Chancellor for Administrative Affairs in 2019. Prior to joining the Warhawk family, she worked as the interim Chief Business Officer and had other supervisory roles at UW-Platteville where she also taught accounting.
During her time at UW-Whitewater, Taryn has quickly become a creative and positive leader. She helped lead efforts for the university’s financial plan and fully understands the necessity to be innovative in our approaches to all aspects of the Administrative Affairs division. Taryn will serve in the interim role while the university conducts a national search to replace Vice Chancellor Grace Crickette who is leaving for UW-Eau Claire on September 18. We will miss Grace very much.
Please join me in congratulating Taryn, and welcome her to her new role.
