Dear UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff,
It is with immense pride that I share the news that Dr. Corey King will be the next Chancellor at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Dr. King has made a tremendous impact during his tenure at UW-Green Bay. Under his leadership, we have quickly become the third most diverse university in the UW System and have been recognized as a First Gen Forward Institution. He has made enormous strides in transforming Student Affairs to meet the needs of an access institution and he has modeled how collaboration with his colleagues and the community can lead to impactful opportunities for our students and the overall advancement of our university and region. Perhaps more importantly, I appreciate the gracious spirit and positive manner with which he championed and accomplished his goals.
Despite being sad to lose Corey, we should celebrate this appointment in all ways. It means we made a great hire and he will now take his extensive experience in higher education to further advance our state and its people through his work in his new role. I am eternally grateful to him for being an amazing and trusted colleague. Please join me in congratulating Dr. King on his new appointment.
Dr. King’s last day will be February 13. Gail Sims-Aubert has agreed to serve as Interim Vice Chancellor for Inclusivity and Student Affairs and will begin on February 14. I am grateful for her leadership and willingness to help keep the momentum going in the Division.
