Regents name Mark Mone as new UW-Milwaukee chancellor

The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents has named Dr. Mark A. Mone as UW-Milwaukee’s new chancellor.

The regents announced the hiring Monday. Mone has served as interim chancellor at the school since May after former Chancellor Michael Lovell left to become president at Marquette University.

Mone is a professor of management within the UW-Milwaukee’s business school. He has been a member of the university’s faculty since 1989.

“I am honored and privileged to serve our students, faculty and staff, community, and UW System in this role,” Mone said. “UW-Milwaukee is a vitally important academic institution with an impressive alumni base, strong research profile, and deep community engagements.  I look forward to working with our leadership to build on our past accomplishments, knowing that even greater things are ahead for this campus and community.”

He beat out two other finalists for the chancellor’s job — Gail Hackett, provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and William “Mike” Sherman, senior vice president, provost and chief operating officer at the University of Akron.
