New UW-Stout Chancellor makes his first campus visit

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) UW-Stout's new chancellor made his first official stop at the campus Thursday.

Robert Meyer was selected as Stout's 7th chancellor last month.

He was chosen to replace Chancellor Charles Sorensen, who is retiring in August after being at the college for 26 years.

Meyer has two degrees from UW-Stout and served in several positions in the administration.

Thursday, he had the opportunity to meet with a number of campus groups and university leaders during his visit.

"It's a pleasure to be back at my alma mater and be able to take the college to a new level," says Meyer.

Meyer will officially take office on August 16th.
