Lopez to depart for UCLA, Anderson named interim director of Admissions


Doyle appoints five members to Board of Regents
Gov. Jim Doyle appointed five new members to the UW System Board of Regents Jan. 13. They are:

  • Mark J. Bradley, 52, of Wausau, an attorney and the husband of Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley. He worked as a budget analyst for the UW System before going to law school.
  • Danae Davis, 47, of Milwaukee, director of staffing and diversity for Miller Brewing Company. Davis was legal counsel to former Gov. Tony Earl and director of the city of Milwaukee's Department of Employee Relations.
  • Peggy Rosenzweig, 66, of Wauwatosa, a former Republican state Senator who lost her seat in the fall GOP primary to Tom Reynolds, who went on to win the seat.
  • Jesus Salas, 59, of Milwaukee, a bilingual social studies instructor at Milwaukee Area Technical College for the last 17 years and a Latino studies instructor at UW-Milwaukee.
  • David G. Walsh, 60, of Madison, an attorney and part owner of the Milwaukee Brewers who went to Harvard Law School with Doyle.

Doyle wants the new regents to replace Alfred De Simone, James Klauser, Phyllis Krutsch, Gerard Randall and Lolita Schneiders.

However, De Simone and Randall said they will keep their seats until the state Senate confirms their replacements. They were appointed by former Gov. Thompson in 1995, who reappointed Randall in 2001. Former Gov. McCallum asked De Simone to serve an additional year after his term ended in 2002. Both were confirmed.

Klauser, Krutsch and Schneiders, on the other hand, never were confirmed by the Senate because former Majority Leader Chuck Chvala never scheduled a vote on their positions. This allows Doyle to rescind their appointments immediately.

With other member's terms expiring in May, Doyle will be able to appoint a total of nine new members to the 17-member board this year.

UW System President Katharine Lyall commended Doyle for naming his appointments to the board promptly.

"It is clear from their backgrounds and experience that the new regents know the university well and have much to offer us in their new capacity," she said.

Lyall said UW officials would brief the new regents as quickly as possible "so they can step into their new assignments with ease to ensure a smooth transition for the board."

She also thanked the regents who are leaving the board. "They have served the UW System and its students very well, and we are grateful."

The regents are next scheduled to meet Feb. 6 and will begin working on the university budget as the state faces a projected $2.6 billion deficit for the two-year budget period beginning July 1. Go to Top

Lopez to depart for UCLA, Anderson named interim director of Admissions
Robert Lopez and Kristina AndersonRobert Lopez, UW-Eau Claire executive director of enrollment services and director of admissions, has accepted the position of director of football operations at UCLA. Lopez will reunite with newly hired head football coach Karl Dorrell. Dorrell and Lopez worked together in 1990-91 at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, where Dorrell was the football team's offensive coordinator and Lopez served as recruiting coordinator.

Prior to entering the college admissions field, Lopez spent 14 years coaching football at the high school, junior college and college levels. He played quarterback at Illinois State University from 1972-76, starting his last two seasons.

As UCLA director of football operations Lopez will oversee the administrative side of the football program, including everything from coordinating travel arrangements for the team to organizing the university's football camps for high school athletes.

"I love athletics, and of course football — so to be able to be involved with a prestigious program such as UCLA is a great opportunity," Lopez said.

Lopez will leave UW-Eau Claire Jan. 25. Provost and Vice Chancellor Ronald Satz named Kristina Anderson as interim director of admissions effective Jan. 26. She will serve until a new executive director of enrollment services and director of admissions has been selected.

"Bob Lopez has done a terrific job for UW-Eau Claire, and we wish him well in his new position at UCLA," Satz said. "Kris Anderson has worked closely with Bob and the admissions staff in recruiting the class of 2003-04, and she is well prepared to complete our recruitment. The quality of the incoming freshman class is very strong, with both average ACT scores and high school rank-in-class among the highest in several years."

Anderson, who was appointed as UW-Eau Claire associate director of admissions in fall 2001, has more than 10 years of experience in university admissions. She previously served as assistant director of admissions at UW-Superior and as an admissions counselor at UW-River Falls. She holds a bachelor's degree from Albright College in Reading, Pa., and a master's degree from The College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Va. Go to Top
