New liberal UW Chancellor to make $750,000 a year

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — University of Wisconsin-Madison’s new chancellor is a California liberal with a concerning record of passionate support for leftist ideology like critical race theory. And she’s about to rake in three-quarters of a million dollars a year in a taxpayer-subsidized salary.

According to multiple reports, Jennifer Mnookin will make $750,000 a year, a significant raise from outgoing Chancellor Rebecca Blank’s annual pay of $600,000.

But it’s the University of California, Los Angeles law school dean’s political background that has conservative lawmakers concerned.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) expressed his disappointment in the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents’ “blatant partisan selection.”

“In doing a simple search, you quickly find she wholeheartedly supports critical race theory being taught on campus, is in favor of widespread vaccine mandates, and also met with Hunter Biden in 2019 to entertain a proposal that he join the UCLA faculty to teach drug policy,” Vos said.

Mnookin is also a frequent and generous donor to the Democratic Party and its candidates.  And she is a proponent of COVID-19 vaccinations.

State Sen. Steve Nass (R-Whitewater), vice chairman of the Senate Universities and Technical Colleges Committee said it’s not shocking that the current majority of Gov. Tony Evers’ appointees on the Board of Regents would “opt for a West Coast liberal with no real connections to the values and character of Wisconsin taxpayers and families.” Mnookin earned the support of regents tapped by former Republican Gov. Scott Walker, too.

“If the Board of Regents truly believes that Mnookin is the best choice, then the next Republican governor and legislature should find it impossible to provide more taxpayer dollars or allow the board to increase tuition,” Nass said.

  • The University of WI Madison continues to march to the Marxist agenda. Until we reign in these institutions of higher “learning” our country will continue to be divided. They are indoctrinating our future leaders to believe that they are somehow wiser than those who choose not to go the University route.
    At UW Green Bay many students are conservative and are afraid to speak out against liberal ideas because they fear being ostracized.
    The professors are overwhelmingly liberal and are spoon feeding our most vulnerable young adults their liberal academic garbage.
    There is no reason for a chancellor to be paid $750,000 per year. What has she actually accomplished other than a lengthy educational career. Elon Musk would make a great chancellor. He has contributed to society with his innovative ideas and work ethic.
