The UW-Green Bay Office of the Chancellor emailed the following from Chancellor Michael Alexander to the UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff on Friday, June 19, 2020.
Dear UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff,
As you have probably heard, Tommy Thompson has been named the interim president of the University of Wisconsin System. I am excited to work with President Thompson in his new role. His experience as governor of the state of Wisconsin will be an asset to advocate for the needs of higher education during his tenure. He also has served as the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services, which provides experience that is particularly relevant at this time.
I am looking forward to my first conversation with President Thompson to tell him about the incredible work our faculty, staff, and students are accomplishing. We have so much to be proud of at UW-Green Bay and I believe our mission and the work we are doing to realize it will fully resonate with him.
