Sewall will be interim dean of enrollment services

Tim Sewall, a longtime UW-Green Bay faculty member and former associate provost, will return to the University June 1 as interim dean of enrollment services. Interim Provost and Vice Chancellor Greg Davis shared the news with division staff Friday morning. Sewall will take over from Michael Stearney, who is retiring this month. “We are delighted that someone with Dr. Sewall’s breadth of administrative experience and record of accomplishment has agreed to serve in this critical role,” Davis said in a statement. Sewall retired from the University in 2012 as associate provost for academic affairs and director of graduate studies. That year, he received one of the University’s highest honors in the form of the Founders Award of Excellence for Institutional Development. During his 33-year career, Sewall served with distinction as a member of the award-winning Human Development faculty — he also earned Founders teacher of the year honors in his own right — and took leadership of campuswide programs for first-year students, international education, institutional assessment, graduate programs, faculty development and more. Davis thanked Stearney for his “extraordinary leadership and his selfless service of 30 years, which helped to make UWGB what it is today.” A search for Stearney’s permanent successor will begin during the 2015-16 academic year. The dean of enrollment services oversees UW-Green Bay student services in admissions, career services, academic advising, financial aid and the office of the registrar.
