Message from Chancellor Corey A. King
Dear Campus Colleagues,
Today it was announced that Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Artanya Wesley was named the next vice chancellor of enrollment management and student affairs at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Please join me in congratulating Dr. Wesley.
During her tenure on campus, Dr. Wesley has led with her heart. She is a servant leader whose passion is to ensure all students — in particular those that came from humble communities as she did — see their potential and believe in themselves.
Wesley joined the university in July 2016 as dean of students. She was appointed vice chancellor of student affairs in April of 2020, having served in the role as interim since July 2019.
She previously served in various student affairs leadership roles at the Universities of Wisconsin and UW-Platteville. Her professional experience includes presentations at the local and national level on topics ranging from university housing to Title IX to student recruitment and retention.
The Universities of Wisconsin System honored Dr. Wesley with the Outstanding Woman of Color award twice — in 2009 and 2019.
She earned a Ph.D. in educational psychology from Capella University and two degrees from UW-Platteville: Master of Science in Education in Counselor Education and Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
Dr. Wesley’s last day on campus will be Jan. 5, 2024. Please know I have meetings arranged with Student Affairs leadership and will name an interim leader by the end of January. We will ensure a thoughtful approach in a permanent hire for this role with a continued focus on student excellence.
Again, please join me in congratulating Dr. Wesley and thanking her for her strong leadership and dedicated service to UW-Whitewater.
Corey A. King
