UW Madison Chancellor reacts to Reilly departure

MADISON (WKOW) --- Statement of UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank on the resignation of UW System President Kevin Reilly:

Kevin Reilly's commitment to higher education has had a tremendously positive impact on our state. During his time as president, he has worked diligently to improve the UW System and make it more responsive to the needs of the citizens of Wisconsin, ensuring that more people acquire the skills that drive economic growth.

With all of the challenges facing higher education and the UW System in particular, this will be a critical period of transition. I look forward to working with my fellow chancellors to ensure that the new president will have the cooperation and support of all campuses as we work together to maintain the excellence Kevin was so instrumental in advancing.
