Kenosha News: UW-P chancellor candidates offer a variety of styles
Five will head to Madison for sit-down interviews May 19

Now that the tribe — or at least the faculty, staff and students of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside — has spoken, the five finalists for the school’s top job have one more challenge before being named sole survivor in the search for a new chancellor.

The UW System is taking extra precautions with the search after last year’s pick of Robert Felner from the University of Louisville crashed before he started.

Felner was a favorite from the search committee leader and was touted as the perfect fit, but resigned after coming under investigation for stealing millions in grant money. He has since been indicted. A “no confidence vote” in Louisville also came to light after his selection. Although some members of the search committee were aware of that, the information wasn’t shared with the UW System president.
