UW-Milwaukee is getting a new chancellor

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is getting a new chancellor.

Michael Lovell became interim chancellor when Chancellor Carlos Santiago took over as chief executive officer of the Hispanic College Fund last October.

He was previously the dean of the university’s College of Engineering and Applied Science.

The UW System Board of Regents confirmed Lovell as chancellor in May.

He will be inaugurated during a ceremony Friday.
