About Bob

Chancellor designate Robert MeyerWelcome to my blog. I was privileged to become just the seventh chancellor at UW-Stout on Aug. 16, 2014, succeeding Chancellor Emeritus Charles W. Sorensen, who served 26 years.

I certainly didn’t need much help finding my way around campus, however. I worked for UW-Stout in various capacities – professor, college dean and special assistant to the chancellor – for 25 years. I left in 2006 to become president of the Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College in Shell Lake, Wis., before being named by the UW System Board of Regents in May 2014 as UW-Stout chancellor.

UW-Stout runs deep in my family: I have two degrees from here and so does my wife, Deb.  My daughter Erica also is a UW-Stout graduate.  My daughter Melissa, is a student at UW-Madison.

I am extremely pleased to be “back home” at UW-Stout and hope you enjoy this blog.

    Hello, Bob

    I am wondering if you are the same Bob Meyer who taught Robotics at U.W. – Stout in 1988?
