Chancellor Lovell Announces Resignation »

Hello and welcome to my website. I am proud to be part of this university and to serve our faculty, staff and students, city and state as Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

When I speak to leaders across the region, they uniformly say that UWM will generate ideas and technology to address the challenges of the city and state for decades to come. They do not just expect that from UWM, but they need that from UWM.

I welcome the opportunities that these expectations bring and appreciate your interest in learning more about how we are moving forward.

Michael R. Lovell, Chancellor

Vision
We will be a top-tier research university that is the best place to learn and work for students, faculty and staff, and that is a leading driver for sustainable prosperity.
