UW-Green Bay grad Davis appointed interim provost

Greg Davis, a 1981 graduate of UW-Green Bay who spent 27 years on the Natural and Applied Sciences faculty and the last year as associate provost and director of graduate studies, is the University’s new interim provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. Chancellor Gary L. Miller announced the appointment of Davis to succeed Stephen Fritz, who resigned Wednesday (May 6). Miller said the interim appointment was for an indeterminate length of time, and he expresses his appreciation to Fritz for his service during a time of transition, and to Davis for his willingness “to accept this critical role as we complete the budget reduction process and look forward to an exciting 50th anniversary year.” Davis earned his master’s and Ph.D. at Northwestern University before joining the faculty at his alma mater in 1987, teaching courses in math and environmental sciences.
