There is no specified topic for the presentation, but committee members expect candidates will share information about their background and qualifications, likely introduce their significant other (if applicable) and speak about their interest in becoming UW-Green Bay’s sixth chancellor.

The upcoming public sessions will be the second group of forums held to gauge campus and community input on UW-Green Bay’s next chancellor. In late January and early February, the Search and Screen Committee held a series of five on-and off-campus sessions to gather thoughts on important considerations for choosing UW-Green Bay’s new leader.

After a series of presentations and personal interviews, UW System President Ray Cross and a special UW System Board of Regents Committee will recommend one individual to the full Board of Regents, which must approve the appointment. That is expected to happen at the board’s June meeting. The special committee is chaired by Regent Tim Higgins of Appleton; others on the committee are Regent Mark Bradley of Wausau, Regent Janice Mueller of Madison, and Regent Chuck Pruitt of Milwaukee.

The UW-Green Bay Chancellor Search website, www.uwgb.edu/chancellor/search, has more information on the process, including a video that showcases the campus and community. The Search and Screen Committee consists of 12 UW-Green Bay faculty members, two academic staff members, two classified staff members and two students. Two administrators and three community representatives round out the committee. A full roster is available online.

UW-Green Bay is a comprehensive public institution with an enrollment of approximately 6,600 students, exceptional facilities and affordable, high-quality programs. The University’s 360° of Learning brand is a promise that UW-Green Bay students will learn to examine and solve problems from multiple perspectives. Founded in 1965 and a member institution of the tradition-rich University of Wisconsin System, UW-Green Bay boasts more than 32,000 alumni.

UW-Green Bay Chancellor search enters next phase as application window closes

The search for the sixth chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay has entered its next phase with the close of the application period and the continuation of file reviews by the 23-member Chancellor Search and Screen Committee.

Candidates had until Friday, March 28 to submit their applications for full consideration. Preliminary candidate interviews will take place in April, with on-campus interviews of the publicly announced five finalists taking place in early-to mid-May. As part of the interview process, each finalist will hold an on-campus public forum, which campus and community members alike will be encouraged to attend. All individuals will have the opportunity to give confidential feedback on each finalist.

Since its inception in January, the Chancellor Search and Screen committee has held five listening sessions on and off campus and developed the institutional profile that is an integral part of the search process, along with tools for evaluating candidates and questions for the various levels of candidate interviews. The Chancellor Search website, www.uwgb.edu/chancellor/search/ was developed and has been continually updated, most recently to include a video that showcases campus and community.

Working with executive search firm Storbeck Pimentel & Associates, the Search and Screen Committee is tasked with recommending five finalists for the position of chancellor. The selected individual will succeed UW-Green Bay Chancellor Tom Harden, who announced in December he would be stepping back from his current role sometime in August. Harden, who has been chancellor since 2009, turned 65 in March and wants to spend more time with his family, including his 11 grandchildren. Harden and his wife Cathy plan to remain in the Green Bay area and stay active in the University, with Harden planning a return to teaching down the road.

In mid-April, the search committee is expected to recommend a list of semi-finalists to the UW System President and a special Board of Regents committee, chaired by Regent Tim Higgins of Appleton. Other members of the committee include Regent Mark Bradley of Wausau, Regent Janice Mueller of Madison, and Regent Chuck Pruitt of Milwaukee. A list of finalists will be identified in early May. After a series of public presentations and personal interviews, the UW System president and the Regent committee will recommend one individual to the full board, which must approve the appointment. That is expected to happen at the board’s June meeting.

UW-Green Bay posts position description, launches Chancellor Search website

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay took another step toward finding its next leader Tuesday, Feb. 11, launching the Chancellor Search website at www.uwgb.edu/chancellor/search/.

The site includes a formal posting of the job opportunity, with a description of the position and its responsibilities, and a listing of required and preferred qualifications. Applications and nominations are now being accepted.

The Chancellor Search website — designed to be a repository of information about the University, larger community and specifics of the position — will both help recruit possible candidates and offer the chance for interested parties to follow the process and offer input. The site launch comes on the heels of six public forums, four hosted on campus and two in the community, that were held to inform the process and assess what’s important as the national search continues.

A 23-member Chancellor Search and Screen Committee is in charge of the effort, working in conjunction with Storbeck/Pimentel Executive Search Consultants. Chaired by UW-Green Bay Music Prof. Cheryl Grosso, the committee consists of 12 UW-Green Bay faculty members, two academic staff members, two classified staff members and two students, as well as two administrators and three community representatives.

The committee is tasked with identifying a successor to UW-Green Bay Chancellor Tom Harden, who announced in December he will be stepping back from his current role in August 2014. He and his wife Cathy plan to remain in the Green Bay area and stay active in the University, with Harden planning a return to teaching down the road. With his 65th birthday nearing and 11 grandchildren to watch grow up, Harden said the time is right to step aside. He announced his decision with the intent that his replacement be named in time for the start of the 2014-15 academic year.

Individuals who are interested in the chancellor position must submit application materials by March 28 for full consideration. Preliminary candidate interviews will take place in April, with on-campus interviews of the publicly announced five finalists taking place in early-to mid-May. After a series of public presentations and personal interviews, the University of Wisconsin System president and a special UW System Board of Regents committee will recommend one individual to the full Board of Regents. The board is expected to vote on the selection during its June meeting.
