Meet the candidates
Each candidate will have an hour-long open session with both campus and community members. UW-Green Bay faculty, staff, students and community members are encouraged to attend the forums. (Dates and times listed above) Question and answer sessions will be a part of the forums. If scheduling conflicts prevent attendance, campus and community members may attend a finalist’s session with the University governance committees. If neither of these times are suitable, special arrangements may be made by contacting Search and Screen Committee Secretary Marie Stephenson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ongoing search process
Following the campus visits, Reilly and the Regent committee will then interview the finalists in Madison on Dec. 19. The final appointment of a new chancellor must be confirmed by the full Board of Regents.
