On June 29, 2011, UW System President Kevin Reilly announced that David Ward would return to campus as interim chancellor following the departure of Biddy Martin. Ward took office on July 18, 2011.

It was initially expected that Ward would serve for only one year while a search was conducted to replace Chancellor Martin, but his term was extended for an additional year. (Photo by Jeff Miller)
