Carthage College president John Swallow named HERA chair

The Higher Education Regional Alliance – a collaborative representing 18 southeastern Wisconsin higher education institutions and several partner organizations – has named Carthage College president John Swallow as its next chair.

Swallow, who has led Carthage since 2017, succeeds Mark Mone, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, as HERA chair.

“Colleges, universities, employers, and community organizations across southeastern Wisconsin all want the same thing: an equitable education system that produces an agile workforce equipped for the 21st century,” Swallow said. “These efforts are too important to take on alone, so I’m thrilled to channel our collective will and expertise through the Higher Education Regional Alliance.”

Vicki Martin, president of Milwaukee Area Technical College has been named vice chair. Mone will continue to serve in an advisory capacity as immediate past chair. Each position has a two-year term.
