Evers appoints two new, one returning member to UW Board of Regents
In a press release yesterday, Gov. Evers announced three appointments to the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents. The governor has appointed Jim Kreuser and Evan Brenkus, in addition to reappointing Regent Joan M. Prince. These appointments fill the vacancies created by the expiration of two former appointees’ terms on May 1, and the expiration of Regent Prince’s term.
Regent Kreuser has more than three decades of experience in public service, serving as Kenosha County Executive for 14 years from 2008–2022 and representing Kenosha in the Wisconsin State Assembly for 15 years from 1993–2008.
Regent Brenkus is currently a First Nations and mathematics student at UW–Green Bay. He is involved in the Student Government Association, the Intertribal Student Council, and the Mathematics Club at UW–Green Bay.
Regent Prince was appointed by Gov. Evers in February 2023. She served as the vice chancellor of global inclusion and engagement and as an associate professor in biomedical sciences at her alma mater from 2000–2021. In 2012, Dr. Prince had been nominated by former President Obama to the U.N. General Assembly as a public delegate with the honorary rank of ambassador.
