Former Dean Passionate About New Role

Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen has appointed Bob Meyer, former dean of the College of Technology, Engineering and Manufacturing, as director of federal and state relations.

Meyer will work as a liaison between the university and federal and state agencies, elected representatives and other officials to find financial support for the university’s initiatives.

He also will serve as director of the Stout Technology Transfer Institute.
Meyer said the recent designation of UW-Stout by the Board of Regents as Wisconsin’s polytechnic university provides a direction and focus for UW-Stout.

“I am passionate about my new role because the university is rapidly expanding its offerings in science, technology, engineering and math,” Meyer said. “This positions the university well to raise money to support projects that bring high-tech businesses and employment to Wisconsin.”
