New Provost At UW-L
A Minnesota native who currently lives in England will return to the Midwest to become Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Heidi Slettedahl Macpherson, who currently serves as Pro Vice Chancellor of Research and Innovation at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, will begin her new UW-L position effective July 1st. Macpherson says her 22-year experience overseas will help her transition into her role at UW-L, where she’s already taken note of an emphasis on academics. Macpherson was selected from an international search. She follows former Provost Kathleen Enz Finken, who resigned in December to become provost at Cal Poly University.
