Past Chancellors

Building on The Legacy

We’ve got a bright future – because of our bold past.

At UW-Green Bay, we are future-minded, standing on the shoulders of a pioneering heritage to transform the students and the region we serve. Since its founding in 1965, these tenacious leaders advanced our University into the future.

Past Chancellors

Each chancellor possessed a distinct personality and vision. They also shared a common goal, as expressed by our second chancellor David Outcalt: “...to build on our accomplishments…and continuing, foremost, to dedicate ourselves to the growth and advancement of our students.”
