Dr. Tammy Evetovich was named the 15th Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville on April 25, 2023. Chancellor Evetovich served as the Provost and Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs at UW-Platteville beginning in May 2020. During this time, she led the university’s transition to alternative learning methods due to the COVID-19 pandemic and initiated an academic strategic plan that guides the university as it continues to provide high-quality education. From February through April 2022, she held a concurrent role as interim Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services. For more than 20 years, Chancellor Evetovich served in a variety of roles at Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska. She was the dean of the School of Natural and Social Sciences at Wayne State College. She had been a professor in the Department of Health, Human Performance, and Sport since 2000, and served as chair of the department for seven of those years.

During her tenure at Wayne State College, she helped create new academic degrees and programs. Under her leadership, the college created the Rural Law Opportunities Program and grew the existing Rural Health Opportunities Program, both cooperative programs between Wayne State College and Nebraska College of Law and the University of Nebraska Medical Center, guaranteeing admission to help address the issue of rural legal and health care needs.

Chancellor Evetovich was recognized as the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Outstanding Young Investor in 2002; served as a senior associate editor for the NSCA's Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research and was awarded the journal's Editorial Excellence Award. 

In addition to supporting overall wellness, Chancellor Evetovich is also passionate about initiatives that benefit rural communities. Having grown up on a small family farm in Nebraska, she recognizes and appreciates the important contributions of rural communities to our nation.

Chancellor Evetovich believes the central mission of higher education is to foster student success and excellent student outcomes by creating a campus culture with an imbedded pervasive attitude focused on the entire student.
