Ex-Illi­nois chan­cel­lor headed to Colorado. For­mer Uni­ver­sity of Illi­nois

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST -

Chan­cel­lor Phyl­lis Wise is leav­ing Illi­nois to lead a new biotech­nol­ogy project in Colorado.

The News-Gazette re­ported Wise plans to take a job in mid-Fe­bru­ary as CEO of the Colorado Lon­gi­tu­di­nal Study, a project of the non­profit GoldLab Foun­da­tion.

Wise re­signed as chan­cel­lor in 2015 over the use of pri­vate e-mail to con­duct public busi­ness.

She re­turned to teach­ing af­ter her res­ig­na­tion and led an un­der­grad­u­ate course for the Depart­ment of Molec­u­lar and In­te­gra­tive Phys­i­ol­ogy last spring.

Stephen Sli­gar, head of the School of Molec­u­lar and Cel­lu­lar Bi­ol­ogy, which in­cludes that depart­ment, says Wise told her su­pe­ri­ors re­cently she would be leav­ing.

Illi­nois’ cur­rent chan­cel­lor, Robert Jones, took over this year for in­terim Chan­cel­lor Bar­bara Wil­son, who had the job af­ter Wise’s res­ig­na­tion.
