Jay O. Rothman, President of the Universities of Wisconsin

I am honored to serve as the ninth president of the Universities of Wisconsin, a university system with one of the richest traditions in American public higher education.

Our 13 universities – and the people who make us who we are – change the trajectory of lives every single day, drive critical research, improve communities, and move Wisconsin forward with expanded opportunities.

We are growing Wisconsin’s economy by helping more state residents earn college degrees, and we are committed to opening the doors of the university to talented students from families across Wisconsin, regardless of background.

I am dedicated to helping the UWs support and advocate for our students and our universities while continuing to strengthen our lasting relationships with the people and organizations who count on us.
