UW regents to discuss disciplining or firing chancellor in special meeting

The online meeting will occur at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents will discuss disciplining or firing a chancellor at a special meeting Wednesday evening.

The 5 p.m. meeting was announced in a meeting notice sent late Tuesday evening.

The identity of the chancellor is not immediately known. The regents last met Dec. 20 to discuss unconscious bias training and, in closed session, the UW-La Crosse chancellor search, per a meeting notice.

Joe Gow, UW-La Crosse chancellor, and former UW-Whitewater Chancellor Beverly Kopper were the last chancellors to face board disciplinary action. 

Both were denied pay raises in December 2018. Gow’s denial came after he invited an adult film actress to campus, and Kopper’s denial followed an investigation which indicated her husband sexually harassed female employees and students, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

A UW System spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
