To our community,

The University of Wisconsin Board of Trustees recently launched a search for the next president of UW System. It’s one of the most important decisions the system faces today, a decision that will impact the people and state of Wisconsin, as well as UW-Madison, for years to come.

The next system president will represent our college communities statewide, including the 165,000 students of the system and nearly 40,000 faculty and staff.

Your voice, ideas and input are a valuable part of the research process, and I encourage you to participate in one of the next two Presidential Research Listening Sessions to be held at the UW-Madison campus on September 30 and October 1st.

Karen Walsh, Vice-Chair of the Board of Regents and Chair of the Research Committee, will host the session and has asked for our help in contacting all of you. I am a member of the research committee.

Until the end of September, there will be listening sessions at all 13 universities, as well as meetings with UW system governance groups and system administration.

Here’s how to participate: Two 50-minute sessions are scheduled with a 10-minute break in between:

  • Thursday September 30 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., Tripp Commons, Memorial Union
    • 2:30 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. – Focus teachers and students

It is important that the new president of the UW system is an energetic, imaginative and visionary leader. Please get involved and help shape the process of finding our next System President.
