Cheryl Green to Lead the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

The University of Wisconsin System announced that Cheryl Green will serve as interim chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. She has been serving as vice chancellor for student affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater enrolls more than 11,000 undergraduate students and more than 1,300 graduate students. African Americans make up 4 percent of the undergraduate student body.

Dr. Green will take over after Beverly A. Kopper, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater had announced on December 18 that she will step down from her position on December 31. Dr. Kopper’s husband had faced allegations that he has sexually harassed university staff members.

Before joining the staff at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Dr. Green was assistant vice president for student affairs at Tennessee State University in Nashville. Earlier, she held faculty and administrative posts at Chicago State University.

Dr. Green is a graduate of what is now Manchester University in Indiana, where she majored in psychology. She earned a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Southern Illinois University.
