Sen. Steve Nass (608) 266-2635
Senator Steve Nass (R-Whitewater), Vice-Chairman of the Senate Committee on Universities and Technical Colleges, issued the following statement regarding the resignation of UW-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper:
“The students, faculty, staff and alumni of UW-Whitewater can now focus on the future of this campus. New leadership will provide for an opportunity to address the significant challenges facing this institution of higher learning.
While today’s resignation opens the door for positive change at UW-Whitewater, none of us should forget the healing that continues for the students and employees negatively impacted by the alleged conduct of Mr. Hill and the failure of top level administrators to prevent these circumstances.”
