UW Stout chancellor announces retirement

Menomonie (WQOW) – University of Wisconsin-Stout Chancellor Bob Meyer announced his retirement Monday.

According to a press release from the school, Meyer will retire August 18.

Meyer is the seventh chancellor at UW-Stout. He succeeded the late Chancellor Emeritus Charles Sorensen in 2014.

“At the end of my time on campus, I will have worked for UW-Stout for 32 years, as a faculty member, college dean, special assistant to the chancellor and, finally, chancellor. I feel very privileged to have worked with an exceptional group of faculty, staff and students over that time and have formed many lifelong friendships,” Meyer said.

Meyer said President Ray Cross has indicated that the UW System will commence a search for his replacement in August. UW officials said that an interim chancellor will be named to lead the campus throughout much of the 2019-20 academic year.
