With campuses in Stevens Point, Marshfield and Wausau, the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point (UWSP) is north central Wisconsin’s regional public university and a key economic driver in the area. On Jan. 11, in the midst of a year disrupted by COVID-19, Dr. Thomas Gibson took the helm as the university’s 15th chancellor. Prior to UWSP, Gibson served as vice president for student affairs and vice provost at Bowling Green State University near Toledo, Ohio, from 2016 to 2020.  

Executive Producer Rick Reyer welcomes Chancellor Gibson to the show to discuss his vision for the university, its students and its role in the greater central Wisconsin community, and the challenges facing higher education.
