HISTORY OF THE POSITION

The interim chancellor also moved career services and disability services to the provost’s area and the health services will be contracted to Prevea Health on July 1, 2020. It is anticipated that these changes will provide support to the vice chancellor in the student affairs portion of this role, allowing for enhanced focus on the diversity and inclusion aspects of the position.

  • Demonstrate advocacy for diversity and inclusion through the development of effective policy making, practices, and process developments.
  • Promote a closer working relationship between student affairs, academic affairs, and enrollment services to increase the recruitment and retention of all students and to address issues of access.

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is committed to a vision of diversity that is broadly inclusive, warmly welcoming, and equitable in its treatment of all members of the campus community.
