The key to our campus success is our faculty and instructional staff, thank you to the many alumni, friends, faculty and staff who have made gifts to the Chancellor’s Fund for Teaching Excellence and Student Success. In light of recent budgetary shortfalls, support from our partners is more important than ever before.
Over and over I am reminded of what it takes to make UW-Stout as good as it is, it is you and your partnership. Together we will make our beloved UW-Stout even better in the years ahead.
Again, thank you for your generous support of excellence in teaching at UW-Stout. Your gift will make an important difference on the quality of teaching and instruction and thus ultimately on the lives and careers of our students.
The Stout University Foundation has created a fund honoring University of Wisconsin-Stout Chancellor Bob Meyer's dedication to teaching excellence.
The inspiration for the fund came from Scott Cabot, a classmate of Meyer's in the 1970s. Chancellor Meyer holds two degrees from UW-Stout, as well as a doctorate from the University of Minnesota.
"Keeping UW-Stout's programs the best in class and its graduates sought-after depends on attracting and retaining top faculty," Cabot said. "I had the benefit of teaching excellence as a student, and I'm pleased to support this campaign to ensure it continues."
The Chancellor's Fund for Teaching Excellence and Student Success is used for:

"I believe in offering students the best teaching possible, so how could I not support a fund called the Chancellor's Fund for Teaching Excellence and Student Success? I have been in education as a profession since 1977 and have had the privilege of teaching undergraduate and graduate level coursework, been an undergraduate and graduate program director, and served as chair of two different departments. I'm ending my career in the Graduate School for which I've enjoyed the final 2+ years of my career. I've seen first-hand the importance of supporting faculty and academic excellence."
