The Leadership Issue

This month at Morris brings with it exciting changes in leadership: we'll bid farewell to Chancellor Jacqueline R. Johnson and welcome incoming Chancellor Michelle Behr. We'll also see a change in Alumni Association leadership as Amy Doll-Wohlers '90 succeeds Daniel J. Moore '07 as president of the UMMAA board of directors. We thank these leaders for their service to our institution and wish them the best of luck going forward!
