The longest serving Chancellor in Stouts history will soon be honored.
A building has been renamed to honor the accomplishments, leadership and legacy of late Chancellor Emeritus Charles W. Sorensen. Chancellor Bob Meyer made that announcement yesterday. The UW System Board of Regents unanimously approved renaming Millennium Hall as Sorensen Hall. The renaming is effective immediately, although it will take time to erect new signs. A renaming ceremony is scheduled Monday, Oct. 29.
Sorensen passed away Feb. 23 in Florida of complications from a stroke. He is the longest-serving leader in the university’s 127-year history.
