UW-Stout Leader Will Retire in August
UW-Stout Chancellor Bob Meyer announced in early March that he is retiring on Aug. 18 from the institution where he has worked for a total of 32 years. “It is time for me and my wife, Debbie, to enter a new phase in our lives,” Meyer said. “We will miss the students, faculty, and staff at UW-Stout who have meant so much to us over the years.” Meyer, 62, became the seventh chancellor at UW-Stout on Aug. 16, 2014, succeeding the late Chancellor Emeritus Charles W. Sorensen. “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.” Both Meyer and his wife hold bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UW-Stout. Meyer said UW System President Ray Cross has indicated that the a search for a new chancellor will begin in August. In the meantime, UW-Stout Provost Patrick Guilfoile has been tapped to serve as interim chancellor.
