MADISON, Wis.—University of Wisconsin System President Jay Rothman today announced three finalists for the position of chancellor at the University of Wisconsin–Platteville, a 6,500-student university in the southwest corner of the state that offers more than 50 undergraduate majors, 10 graduate programs, 60 minors, 15 pre-professional programs, and 30 certificates.

A Special Regent Committee selected the finalists from a list of candidates identified by a Search and Screen Committee led by Regent Cris Peterson, chair, and Christina Curras, Professor and Department Chair, Civil and Environmental Engineering, vice chair.

The finalists, listed in alphabetical order, are:

Philip A. Cavalier
Interim Chancellor, University of Tennessee at Martin
Martin, TN

Tammy K. Evetovich
Interim Chancellor, University of Wisconsin–Platteville
Platteville, WI

Artanya M. Wesley
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, University of Wisconsin–Whitewater

Whitewater, WI

In the coming weeks, the candidates will participate in separate campus public forums, offering opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and community members to interact directly with them.

After reviewing campus feedback, Rothman and the Special Regent Committee, comprised of Regents Peterson, Scott Beightol, Mike Jones, Edmund Manydeeds III, and Rodney Pasch and chaired by Regent Peterson, will interview the finalists and recommend a single successful candidate to the Board of Regents, which must approve the appointment.

The person selected through this process will be UW-Platteville’s 15th chancellor.
