Media Memo: Chancellor Search and Screen

Editor's note: On Jan. 13, the number of UW-Eau Claire chancellor candidates whose names are to be submitted to UW System President Kevin Reilly changed from five to four.

TO: News/Assignment Editors

FROM: Judy Berthiaume

DATE: Jan. 11, 2006

SUBJECT: Chancellor Search and Screen

Members of UW-Eau Claire's Chancellor Search and Screen Committee will present the names and qualifications of four candidates to UW System President Kevin Reilly and members of the special regent committee for the UW-Eau Claire chancellor search at 1 p.m. Jan. 13 on the UW-Eau Claire campus.

The Jan. 13 meeting is a closed meeting.

President Reilly has indicated that he plans to announce the names of the finalists Jan. 17 (offices are closed Jan. 16 for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday).

After President Reilly makes the names public, the News Bureau will post information about each candidate — including vitas, photos and cover letters — on UW-Eau Claire's Chancellor's Search Web site.

The finalists will be invited to the UW-Eau Claire campus for daylong visits the week of Jan. 23. Details of those visits will be posted on the university's Web site as they are confirmed. There will be opportunities for members of the media to interview the candidates during their campus visits.

The finalists will interview with President Reilly Jan. 30 in Madison. When President Reilly has made his selection and a contract has been signed, the UW System will announce the name of the next UW-Eau Claire chancellor. The Board of Regents will then make the official appointment during its meeting Feb. 9 and 10.

Dr. Robert Hooper, chair of the Chancellor Search and Screen Committee, and Mike Rindo, a member of the committee, are available to make general comments about the quality of the pool of candidates. However, neither can discuss the identities of candidates nor provide any other details about the search at this time.

You can reach Robert Hooper at (715) 836-4932 or hooperrl@uwec.edu.

You can reach Mike Rindo at (715) 836-4741 or rindomj@uwec.edu.
