In addition to its full slate of business items, including review and consideration of the 2015-17 UW System Biennial Budget, UW Oshkosh administrators, faculty, staff, students and partners will offer a number of presentations covering institutional initiatives and strides. The presentations will be woven into the Board of Regents’ four Thursday morning committee meetings and its main sessions on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
“It is, once again, a privilege to host our Regents, UW System President Ray Cross’s administrative team and the legislators, partners, faculty, staff, students and other guests who make up our diverse stakeholder groups and constituencies,” UW Oshkosh Chancellor Richard Wells said. “We look forward to welcoming all to Oshkosh to learn more about our UW Oshkosh story, from our ongoing initiatives to the tremendous transformations our campus and academic programs have gone through during the last 14 years of this chancellorship.”
The Board of Regents will recognize Chancellor Wells on Friday, Aug. 22 for his 14 years of service as Chancellor of UW Oshkosh.
Wells will officially retire as the University’s 10th Chancellor on Aug. 31. The search for the 11th Chancellor is well underway, and the search-and-screen committee expects to, as anticipated, determine and reveal finalist candidates in September.
UW Oshkosh last hosted a UW System Board of Regents’ monthly meeting in fall 2010.
