Tech Chancellor Interviewed for President Position at University of Wisconsin

Last month Chancellor David Smith traveled to Wisconsin to be interviewed by a university selection committee. This, after being nominated for the position as System President, a position that oversees an enormous operation. The 8th largest university system in the country. So broad it's like "herding cats," according to a Wisconsin regent.

How do they compare? Like David and Goliath.

  • Total students at UW - 160,000 versus 32,000 at TTU.
  • Faculty and staff: 32,000 versus 11,000.
  • Budget: $3.7 billion versus $900 million.

So far, no offers have been made and Smith isn't necessarily looking to leave. "I have a good job," he said in a phone interview. What's more, he's currently in negotiations with Tech to extend his current contract.

60 applicants and nominees have been interviewed for the position. On Friday July 16th, that number will be cut down to five.
