UW-Parkside Chancellor Debbie Ford’s statement on announcement of Jay Rothman as incoming UW System President

Published: January 21, 2022

On behalf of the UW Parkside learning community, we congratulate incoming UW System President Jay Rothman. We look forward to working with him as he guides the UW System and our commitment to the Wisconsin Idea. 

We’d also like to take this moment to thank outgoing UW System President Tommy Thompson for his leadership and support during this interim period, and we’re hoping to host him back on campus sometime this spring.

Finally, we congratulate Mike Falbo, proud UW-Parkside alum, on serving as interim president, and we look forward to working with him as he leads us through the transition to incoming UW System President Rothman.
