Welcome from Marsha Mailick, Interim Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education
It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education. As the Interim Vice Chancellor, I’m not only honored to lead such a central part of the research enterprise at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, but also thrilled to work with the dedicated team of faculty researchers, administrators and staff we have in place.
There’s never been a more critical time for research and graduate education at this university, and as the leader charged with steering a $1 billion research enterprise, I’m acutely aware of the challenges ahead. It’s also a time of enormous opportunity and excitement, with new discoveries, technologies and thought leadership transforming the landscape of research and graduate education. Here at Wisconsin, we believe this transformation will advance not only our university, but our state, our nation, and ultimately, our world.
I intend for the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education to address the complex challenges of the university’s broad research enterprise and support the needs of graduate education across campus, in a thoughtful and collaborative manner, all while providing strong leadership and clear vision in the constant pursuit of research and graduate education excellence.
I hope you will share my heartfelt enthusiasm for the work of this office and the efforts of our team.
Marsha Mailick, Vaughan Bascom and Elizabeth M. Boggs Professor and Interim Vice Chancellor
