TO: News Editors and Directors
FROM: Julie Poquette
Dr. Gilles Bousquet begins his duties as interim chancellor at UW-Eau Claire today. He will be available to talk with reporters today at 3 p.m. in Room 202 of Schofield Hall.
In April UW System President Kevin Reilly named Bousquet as the person to lead UW-Eau Claire while a search is launched for a successor to the university's former chancellor, Dr. Brian Levin-Stankevich. Levin-Stankevich left UW-Eau Claire in May to become president of Westminster College in Utah. He had served as UW-Eau Claire's chancellor since 2006.
See a UW System news release for more background information about Bousquet.
