New UW-Oshkosh Chancellor Selected

UW-Oshkosh has a new chancellor. The UW System Board of Regents approved Dr.
Andrew J. Leavitt’s appointment as the 11th chancellor of UW-Oshkosh. He is
currently the vice president for University Advancement at the University of North Georgia
and chief executive officer of the University
of North Georgia Foundation
Inc. He will begin at the UW-Oshkosh on November 1st.  Leavitt says he’s excited about the
opportunity. He says he basically grew up in a state university setting, which
he says has a unique relationship between students and faculty. Leavitt says
fundraising for university programs takes community engagement, which his
predecessor Chancellor Wells was a master at. Dr. Barbara Rau, of the UW Oshkosh
College of Business, who chaired the 21-member search-and-screen committee,
said it is a significant day for the University and will build on the momentum
generated during the chancellorship of Richard H. Wells. For more about
