Reilly announces he’ll step down as UW System president
University of Wisconsin System President Kevin Reilly announced this afternoon that he is leaving his post at the end of this year.
Reilly, 63, said he is leaving to advise the American Council on Education, which represents the presidents of U.S. accredited, degree-granting institutions and advocates on federal policy debates.
Earlier today, Gov. Scott Walker confirmed the move to reporters in Milwaukee after the Wisconsin State Journal broke the story.
