UIS welcomes Koch

The next Vice President and Chancellor of the University of Illinois Springfield is on campus this week meeting with students and staff. Dr. Susan Koch is expected to take over July first, after the Board of Trustees gives its approval.

Koch says the transition into the new role will be a learning experience.

This is Koch’s first visit to the UIS campus. She says the school’s emphasis on public affairs attracted her to the job.

Koch is finishing up in her current position as Vice President for Academic Affairs at Northern Michigan University. Koch will replace Interim Chancellor Harry Berman who plans to retire soon.

Koch was featured by WUIS Public Radio in an April 12, 2011, report.
