MILWAUKEE _ University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Chancellor Mark Mone issued the following statement in response to today’s appointment of Jay Rothman as the next president of UW System:

“UW System is in good hands with today’s announcement. I know Jay Rothman, and I have great admiration for his intellect and inclusive leadership style. His strong connections throughout southeastern Wisconsin and beyond will benefit all the UW campuses. And, we couldn’t ask for a better interim leader than Mike Falbo, who is intimately familiar with the UW System and has long been one of its strongest advocates. I commend the Board of Regents and all those who helped make this search a success. I am energized about our future and look forward to working with Interim President Falbo and incoming President Rothman.”
