UW-Extension Leadership

Each year, hundreds of UW-Extension programs and offices are guided by a select team of leaders and administrators who head four distinct programmatic divisions, UW-Extension Conference Centers and the Wisconsin Humanities Council. These Deans and Directors are supported by our centralized administrative staff and report to UW-Extension Provost Aaron Brower and Chancellor Sandeen.
