UW regents choose new chancellor


MADISON (AP) -- A search committee has chosen an East Coast college president to lead the University of Wisconsin System's two-year schools and outreach programs.

The panel announced Friday that it has picked Raymond Cross, president of Morrisville State College in New York, to be the next UW Colleges and UW-Extension chancellor.

Cross has served as president at Morrisville State College since 1998. He also served as president of Northwest Technical College in Bemidji, Minn., from 1992 until 1998.

The full UW Board of Regents still must confirm him. He would succeed David Wilson, who stepped down as chancellor in June to become president of Morgan State University.
