UW–Madison alum named vice chancellor for inclusivity and community engagement at UW–Green Bay

UW–Madison alumna Dawn B. Crim was recently named UW–Green Bay’s new vice chancellor for inclusivity and community engagement.


Crim earned her PhD from the School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis in 2021. She also served as the School of Education’s associate dean for external relations from 2011 to 2017.

According to the university’s announcement, Crim “brings more than 20 years of experience in higher education, governmental, and civic leadership, and is recognized statewide for her expertise in equity, diversity and inclusion.”

The announcement continues: “(Crim) redesigned WEOP, a statewide college readiness grant program that provides preparation, resources, and financial support to low income and diverse middle and high school students by adding parenting education sessions and college tours which included siblings. This change expanded college exposure, improved student attendance and retention, and increased graduation rates.”

“She brings a true passion for inclusivity and understands the importance of community engagement as it relates to meeting regional needs,” states UW–Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander. “I am excited to have her knowledge and expertise on our Cabinet and know that she will foster a positive experience on campus and help us continue to connect in meaningful ways with the communities we serve.”

About her new position, Crim says, “By engaging with all four campus communities, together we can realize the one university vision and better support students, families, nonprofits, and businesses in the region.”

Crim will begin her new role on Aug. 9.
