ASM Statement on Chancellor Blank's Departure from UW-Madison

MADISON, WI — The Associated Students of Madison would like to congratulate Chancellor Rebecca Blank on her new position as President of Northwestern University. We are greatly appreciative for her nine years of dedicated service to UW–Madison students and the state of Wisconsin. 

The Chancellor has been with us in some of the most trying times in recent UW–Madison history. Despite a global pandemic and challenges from the State Legislature, she led a historic expansion of the Bucky’s Tuition Promise program and promoted inclusion education by ensuring all new students attend Our Wisconsin. 

ASM is committed to collaborating closely with Chancellor Blank for the rest of the academic year and looks forward to working with the Office of the Chancellor to ensure UW–Madison is committed to student inclusion in the selection process for her successor. Regardless of who the next chancellor is, we hope they will share our goals of promoting student voices and making campus an equitable and inclusive environment.
