Dr. Charles W. Sorensen has had a long and productive career in public higher education, serving with distinction in three states, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. He is in his 25th year as Chancellor at UW-Stout, and has focused sharply on promoting high quality academic programs and reaching out to the private sector in a broad range of economic development interests. He has served on a number of statewide committees fostering economic development and most recently chaired the Research to Jobs Implementation Task Force for the University of Wisconsin System.
Under his leadership, UW-Stout has been transformed to a digital campus. A modern, state-of-the-art information technology network supports a vibrant laptop program, which has transformed both the teaching and learning environment. All students lease a laptop as an admissions requirement which provides a level technology playing field for all students. UW-Stout has become a state-wide leader in online education as well, reaching 2,000 students annually, meeting the needs of the non-traditional student in Wisconsin and world-wide.
He has supported UW-Stout’s long tradition of focused, applied education and led the effort that resulted in the UW System Board of Regents designating UW-Stout as Wisconsin’s Polytechnic University. Under his leadership, the university, in partnership with the City of Menomonie, Xcel Energy, the Stout University Foundation, established the successful Stout Business and Technology Park. The university has earned distinction for its technology transfer efforts, headquartered in the on-campus Discovery Center.
In 2001, the university was awarded the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the only full university to achieve this distinction.
Dr. Sorensen has three degrees in history, with a doctorate from Michigan State University.

In this episode of The Red Light Sports Ramble; presented by The Red Light Sports Network, Evan Witalison and Troy Otradovec will talk about the lastest rumors, about the Wisconsin Badgers, next head coach. Rumors are surfacing that current Pittsburgh coach, Paul Chryst, is in line to be named coach. No offer can be until a December 17th deadline has passed, because of the UW hiring policy, that is in place. Chryst, a Madison native, and former Wisconsin quarterback, could finally be the coach that stays. The next Badgers coach will be the third coach, since 2012. Do you think that Paul Chryst should be the next Badgers coach?
Week 15 started last night, with the Arizona Cardinals holding on to beat the St. Louis Rams. The Cardinals may have won the game, but could have suffered another setback. Starter Drew Stanton has an ACL, MCL strain. This injury could sideline him for a couple of weeks, and the Cardinals have big games, against the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. Do you think that the Stanton injury could cost the Cardinals a division title?
There are other games that have playoff implications this week, the biggest being the Dallas Cowboys visiting the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles won on Thanksgiving, so if they win, it would almost ensure them the division title, because they would have won both head to head matchups. Houston visits Indianapolis, and their slim division title hopes rest on this game. The Texans enter the game two games behind the Colts. Even with a win, the Texans would need the more help with two weeks remaining. Denver travels to San Diego, with a two game lead. The Broncos are 7-0, at home, but a mere 3-3 record, on the road. Finally, the San Francisco 49ers travel to Seattle. The Seahawks are still in the hunt, for a divsion title, while the 49ers are hanging on, by a thread. Who are you picking?
