Winona St. official tapped for UW-Eau Claire post

WINONA, Minnesota (WXOW) - University of Wisconsin System officials are recommending a Winona State University vice president as the next chancellor of UW-Eau Claire.

James Schmidt currently is vice president for university advancement. Schmidt also is executive director of the WSU Foundation Board of Trustees.

UW System President Kevin Reilly and a special committee of the UW System Board of Regents announced their recommendation of Schmidt Monday. The full board is scheduled to act April 5.

Schmidt will step into his new leadership role in July. The Winona State graduate joined the university in 1998 overseeing development, government relations and marketing.

UW-Eau Claire has more than 11,000 students. Former Chancellor Brian Levin-Stankevich stepped down last spring to become president of Westminster College in Salt Lake City.
