UW-River Falls Gallo 20th Chancellor

UW-River Falls recently inaugurated their 20th chancellor.

“I promise that UW-River Falls will continue to foster educational access that provides opportunities for socioeconomic mobility for all students,” Maria Gallo said before nearly 300 attendees during her inauguration speech in the University Center. 

Gallo began her tenure at UWRF in July 2021 after serving as president of Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, Penn., in a career that includes other administrative and faculty positions.

Gallo said the UW System has created the Wisconsin Tuition Promise to increase access for Wisconsin students from low income and moderate-income families.

Besides increasing access, Gallo said, it’s important for UW-River Falls to work hard on diversity, equity and inclusion.
