UMN Morris Chancellor Behr to retire

University of Minnesota Morris Chancellor Michelle Behr plans to retire as chancellor at the end of the academic year. During her tenure, Chancellor Behr has led the Morris campus through a strategic visioning and planning process, reaffirmation of accreditation, and record-breaking years of private giving.

“There is seldom a perfect time for leadership transitions, but I am taking this step, confident that this is the right decision for the University of Minnesota Morris and for me,” says Chancellor Behr. “UMN Morris is, as I said when I arrived, ‘…a singular, fabulous place.’ I have every confidence that you all will rise to the challenges of this extraordinary place.”
