Board of Regents names new UW-Milwaukee chancellor

The UW System Board of Regents has approved Dr. Mark A. Mone as the next chancellor of UW-Milwaukee.

Mone had been serving as interim chancellor since May after former Chancellor Michael Lovell took a position as president at Marquette University. 

Mone is a professor of management within the UWM Lubar School of Business and for the past two years has served as the Chancellor's Designee for Strategic Planning and Campus Climate. Mone has been a member of the UW-Milwaukee faculty since 1989.

“I am honored and privileged to serve our students, faculty and staff, community, and UW System in this role,” Mone said. “UW-Milwaukee is a vitally important academic institution with an impressive alumni base, strong research profile, and deep community engagements. I look forward to working with our leadership to build on our past accomplishments, knowing that even greater things are ahead for this campus and community.”

Mone holds a Ph.D. in management (organizational behavior and organization theory) from Washington State University. He earned a master of business administration degree from Idaho State University, and his bachelor's degree in organizational management with an English minor from CentraWashington Universityty.

“Dr. Mone is an impressive educational leader and he is clearly enthusiastic about UW-Milwaukee and all of its strengths and potential,” said UW System President Ray Cross. \"I am confident Mark has the vision, talent, and experience to guide UW-Milwaukee as it enters a new era.”

Mone will be UW-Milwaukee's ninth chancellor. 

UW-Milwaukee will host a news conference at 2 p.m. today to present the school's new chancellor.

CBS 58's Joshua Landon will have more on the big announcement on the CBS 58 News at 5 p.m.
