UW-Stout in Menomonie will soon have a new person in charge as chancellor Bob Meyer announced his retirement Monday.
In a statement out Monday, the 62-year-old Meyer says it was a time for him and his wife “to enter a new phase in our lives.”
Meyer became chancellor in 2014. He, his wife and one of his daughters are also graduates of UW-Stout.
The statement said the UW System will start a search for his replacement this August and that an interim chancellor will be named to lead the campus throughout much of the 2019-20 academic year.
