Outgoing Chancellor Says She Won’t Miss The Politics

The outgoing chancellor at the University of Wisconsin in Madison says she won’t miss dealing with the state legislature.

Rebecca Blank held her last news conference as the head of Wisconsin’s flagship state university Wednesday.

Blank says state lawmakers are trying to over-regulate the university, and have constrained the school’s administrators. She says she also wishes she could have done more for diversity.

Blank was Madison’s chancellor for nine years. Next month, she’ll be the new president of Northwestern University.
