This undated photo released by the University of Washington on Aug. 3, 2011, shows University of Washington Provost Phyllis Wise. In a news release Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2011, the Univeristy of Illinois announced they have chosen Wise as its new chancellor. Wise will take over the top job at the university's flagship campus in Urbana-Champaign on Oct. 1, pending approval by the board of trustees at their next meeting in September. She will replace interim Chancellor Robert Easter, who took over after the 2009 resignation of Richard Herman during the campus' Category I scandal over the admission of politically connected students.
