Have you ever wondered what Chancellor Bob Meyer’s opinion is on the big-ticket items here at University of Wisconsin–Stout? Or thought you’d like to know what the big man on campus is up to? Well, wait no longer because the chancellor’s blog “Chancellor Bob’s Blog” promises to keep you up to date.

The idea began as a way to recognize faculty on campus, but has since evolved.

“I attended a meeting of the Senate of Academic Staff and the members of the group suggested that we look at ways to recognize people on campus for all the great things that are going on here,” Chancellor Meyer said. “It seemed to us that a blog might be the right vehicle.”

Chancellor Meyer works in conjunction with Doug Mell, executive director of communications and external relations, to produce a blog post weekly. The posts have a variety of topics from commenting on excellent staff members to a recap of a visit he made to the Child and Family Study Center.

“[The blog] is sort of evolving and will continue to evolve,” Chancellor Meyer said. “I intend to use the blog to offer opinions and other statements on subjects of importance to the campus.”

Chancellor Meyer hopes the blog will serve to allow students to better know their chancellor and to improve communication to the entire Stout campus.

For those wanting to stay up to date with the chancellor, announcements of blog updates will be posted in Campus Life Today and on the Stout Facebook and Twitter pages.

“I just hope that people enjoy the blog and the information in it,” Chancellor Meyer said.
