McCollum is new assistant vice chancellor for academic administration
He will report directly to Julia Wallace, the University’s provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. His appointment, which follows a national search, is effective June 25.
McCollum joins UW-Green Bay from UW-Marshfield/Wood County, where he has served since 2002 as assistant campus dean for administrative services for the two-year college. Previously, he was a regional director for Northcentral Technical College, Wausau, where he also taught courses and coordinated institutional research and continuing education. From 1983 through 1995 he was director of campus services for UW-Stevens Point.
“We are delighted that Dan McCollum has agreed to join our division’s administrative team,” Provost Wallace said. “His far-reaching experience with budgets, planning, data analysis, private-industry consulting, institutional shared governance, curriculum and program development make him an excellent match for this position.”
McCollum will have both operational and administrative responsibilities. He will assist the provost with oversight and coordination of facilities usage, budget and planning related to the recruitment of faculty and academic staff. Areas of additional attention will be oversight of the Institute for Research and organization of both May and December commencement ceremonies.
McCollum succeeds Michael Marinetti, who is retiring this summer after more than 30 years with UW-Green Bay.
McCollum holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from UW-Stevens Point and a master’s degree in business leadership from Upper Iowa University. He is completing his doctoral program in educational leadership at Cardinal Stritch University.
He has taught college- and university-level courses in management, psychology, organizational development, software applications, leadership and more for UW-Marshfield, Northcentral and MidState technical colleges, the University of Phoenix and the Wisconsin Military Academy at Camp Douglas, Wis. He has 18 years of service with the Wisconsin Army National Guard, where he held the rank of staff sergeant.
