Vice Provost for Libraries and University Librarian Lisa Carter will depart the University of Wisconsin–Madison this spring to become Dean of Libraries and University Librarian at the University of Michigan. An interim will be appointed in the coming weeks and a nationwide search will commence filling the position.

Carter came to UW–Madison in 2018, after serving in leadership roles at the Ohio State University, North Carolina State University, and the University of Kentucky. During her tenure at UW–Madison, Carter oversaw efforts to reimagine Libraries’ facilities and storage needs, successfully advocated for base budget increases, and, with the Chazen Museum of Art, secured a $500,000 grant from the Mellon Foundation with a matching grant from the university.

“I want to thank Lisa for her outstanding service to UW–Madison, and in particular, for her leadership and vision through the transformation of the university’s collections storage and management,” says Provost Karl Scholz. “She has been a terrific colleague and we are very sorry to see her leave, but we wish her the best in her new role.”
