OSHKOSH, Wis. (WFRV) - UW-Oshkosh Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Petra Roter has been appointed to serve as interim chancellor for the university.

Her appointment comes upon the retirement of Richard Wells this summer. Roter says she plans on focusing on closing the achievement gap for minority students and veterans, and will address and reassess teachers. Roter does not plan on pursuing the full-time position of chancellor. 

The university hopes to fill that position by January of 2015.
