When the United Nations General Assembly opened its annual session in the fall of 2012 in New York, one of the top leaders at UW-Milwaukee was there serving in a very special role as one of the diplomatic representatives for the United States. Joan Prince shares her U.N. experiences.

Dr. Joan Prince, Vice Chancellor of Global Inclusion and Engagement, was nominated by President Obama to serve as Alternate Representative of the United States to the Sixty-seventh Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations. She completed her United Nations service this winter, and has returned to UWM to resume her work as vice chancellor.

As the Chief External Officer, she is charged with the global responsibilities of managing external relations for the University, and internal executive administration. This encompasses the building of innovative and entrepreneurial bridges between academics and the broader private and public sectors of the community through engagement of entities such as international organizations, corporations, NGO’s, higher education associations, non-profits and other social and civic organizations.
