Becky Blank, formerly Dean of the Ford School at Michigan and more recently acting Secretary of Commerce in the Obama administration has been appointed chancellor of the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
Congrats to Becky!
And read the article for the once-in-a-lifetime sight of Scott Walker agreeing with Sara Goldrick-Rab.
A spanking too, for the Obama administration, for not promoting her to Secretary of Commerce.
Addendum: The piece I originally linked too gives a too-positive view of Sara Goldrick-Rab's position, which you can read about at her blog here (and in a number of other posts related to the chancellor selection process).
Who was my favorite student this term?
