Johnsen a finalist for president of the University of Wisconsin System

Dear UA Community,

This morning, the University of Wisconsin System will make public my name as a finalist for its next president. I wasn’t looking for another job when I was nominated for this one, but the position aligns with my experience and skills as a university leader. The opportunity to lead a larger university is an exciting prospect, and Madison is in very close proximity to our family. I want you to know that next week I will be in final discussions with the presidential search committee and the university community, and the outcome of those discussions is expected by mid-June. I will, of course, be in communication with you following that decision. In the meantime, I remain committed to helping UA transform and address the challenges ahead.

Thank you,
Jim Johnsen
