UW-Stout's Womack serves as interim chancellor at UW-Superior

Appointment of Jan Womack as interim chancellor at UW-Superior is a tribute to her leadership, creativity and administrative abilities, UW-Stout Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen said. Womack, UW-Stout's vice chancellor for administrative and student life services, was named to the post by UW System President Katharine Lyall.

The appointment will be through July 1996, when a new chancellor for UW-Superior is expected to take office. "I am looking forward to her return to UW-Stout, and we certainly will miss her leadership on this campus," Sorensen said. "At the same time, this is a great opportunity for her. It underscores a statewide reputation she has in information technology and innovative administration."

Womack said that she is looking forward to working with faculty and staff at UW-Superior. "This certainly will be an exciting challenge," she said. "I am looking forward to learning more about UW-Superior and its contribution to the UW System. I know this is an excellent institution, and I am quite proud that I have been chosen to provide its interim leadership."

Womack joined the UW-Stout staff in summer of 1989 after serving as vice president of administrative services at Oklahoma State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine. She has a doctor of philosophy degree in higher education administration from the University of Oklahoma and a juris doctor degree in law from Oklahoma City University.

During her appointment, Diane Moen, director of business and financial services, is serving as vice chancellor. Sorensen said Moen has an excellent grasp of budget and issues facing higher education.
