Shari Mickey-Boggs named Senior Associate Chancellor for Human Resources
January 19, 2022 3:02 PM

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Shari Mickey-Boggs has been chosen to serve as the Senior Associate Chancellor for Human Resources at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Her title will be interim Senior Associate Chancellor for Human Resources until it is approved by the Board of Trustees. She will begin in this role on March 1.

Shari is currently Chief HR Officer at Wright State University. In this role, she has been responsible for human resources consulting and strategy, talent management, employee and labor relations, compensation and training and compliance. She also served two years as the Secretary to the Board of Trustees.

Shari has more than 27 years of university experience, and before she was at Wright State University, she held HR positions at Xavier University and Ohio State University. She holds a bachelor’s in political science from Ohio State University and a master’s of business administration from Franklin University.

As Senior Associate Chancellor for Human Resources, Shari will play a vital role in leading the university’s human resources function as we move into our Next 150 years, with a focus on our Operational Excellence initiative to implement changes to more clearly define roles and responsibilities, improve services and align resources with institutional priorities.

I’d like to extend my sincere thanks to the search committee, chaired by Dean Jeff Brown, for its careful work in recruiting and evaluating an outstanding selection of applicants and in guiding the search process over the past months.

I also want to express my deep appreciation for Deb Stone, who has been serving as interim Senior Associate Chancellor for Human Resources since Elyne Cole retired in June. Deb’s strong and careful leadership in the past several months has provided stability for Human Resources and for the university, especially in light of many COVID-19 challenges.

I hope you will join me in congratulating Shari Mickey-Boggs once she arrives on campus in this role at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.


Robert J. Jones
