Vice Chancellor for Inclusivity & Community Engagement

Dear UW-Green Bay Faculty and Staff,

I am thrilled to announce that Dr. Dawn Crim has accepted our offer to be UW-Green Bay’s Vice Chancellor for Inclusivity and Community Engagement. She will begin on August 9.

Dr. Crim is currently the consultant for the Equity, Inclusion and Employee Well Being unit within the Office of Human Resources at UW-Madison after serving most recently as the Cabinet Secretary for the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services. She brings more than 20 years of experience in higher education, governmental and civic leadership and is recognized state-wide for her passion and expertise in supporting inclusion in large organizations. Her proven track record in civic engagement, community partnerships, and economic development, positions her perfectly to help us continue the forward momentum we have on our strategic priorities of inclusion and community engagement. It is apparent from the moment you meet Dr. Crim that she has an energetic and engaging outlook combined with thoughtfulness and compassion, which will make her an incredible addition to our University.

Please join me in thanking the search committee comprised of internal and external stakeholders for their important and timely work on this search. I would also like to thank Gail Sims-Aubert for her tireless efforts in the interim role.

The ability for us to constantly grow as a welcoming institution and engage in meaningful ways with all of the communities we serve is essential for us to move forward as an institution. Dr. Crim is the right leader to guide us in that endeavor. Thank you for your willingness to help us reimagine this position as one that is both internally and externally focused. Our collective commitment to this work will continue to evolve us in ways that will benefit our region for generations to come.

Michael Alexander
