“Her academic training, history at UW-Stout, and ability to think both critically and innovatively across not only Academic Affairs, but the entire university are valuable assets as we continue to advance FOCUS2030, the university’s new 10-year strategic plan,” Frank said.
FOCUS2030 was launched in May.
Rodriguez is a licensed professional architect, with a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University and a Master of Architecture from Georgia Institute of Technology.
“I am excited to serve as the next provost for UW-Stout. Since becoming a member of the community in 2005, I have developed a sense of pride in Stout — its employees, the students, our professional and community partners — and our amazing dedication to fostering success. It’s an honor to lead the Academic Affairs division,” Rodriguez said.
“I am confident that through partnerships, creative problem-solving and strong leadership we can meet the FOCUS2030 goals. Our shared institutional values will serve as our guide, and I am ready to lead our important work as Wisconsin’s Polytechnic University.”
