The unprecedented  exodus of appointees from a Democratic presidential administration to the Ivory Tower continues unabated. “Dr. Rebecca M. Blank, Acting U.S. Secretary of Commerce, has been recommended as the next Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Madison,” the university  announced recently. “UW System President Kevin P. Reilly and a special committee of the UW System Board of Regents announced their recommendation today. “
“Following action by the full board, scheduled for April 5, Blank plans to step into her new leadership role in July. Blank has been with the U.S. Department of Commerce since 2009, serving first as Under Secretary for Economic Affairs, then as Deputy Secretary and Acting Secretary.”
