MADISON — University of Wisconsin System President Katharine C. Lyall has announced the names of four finalists for the position of chancellor of UW-Green Bay.

The names have been forwarded to the Board of Regents’ Special Committee for the UW-Green Bay Chancellor Search, chaired by Regent Patrick Boyle, which will interview the finalists in Madison on Monday, August 6.

Other committee members are Regents Phyllis Krutsch and Frederic Mohs. The full Board of Regents will take final action once it receives a recommendation from the special committee. The vote will most likely occur during a teleconference after August 6, since the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board is not until September 6-7.

The finalists, their administrative titles and current institutions are as follows:

  • Karen I. Halbersleben
    Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty
    Buena Vista University (Storm Lake, Iowa)
  • William J. Lowe
    Vice President for Academic Affairs
    The College of St. Rose (Albany, New York)
  • W. Bruce Shepard
    Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
    Eastern Oregon University (La Grande, Oregon)
  • Michael J. Vinciguerra
    State University of New York at Farmingdale

A 19-member campus/community search and screen committee, chaired by Scott Furlong, associate professor of public and environmental affairs at UW-Green Bay, has been working since March. It submitted its recommendations to President Lyall and the Regents’ Special Committee on July 19 during a meeting at UW-Green Bay.

The person chosen by the Regents will succeed Mark Perkins, who resigned earlier this year to become president of Towson University in Maryland. William Kuepper will serve as interim chancellor at UW-Green Bay until the new chancellor is named and arrives on campus.
