Bollig brings expertise in developing, implementing and assessing curricula and academic policies, and has developed a network of colleagues in key units around campus, says Sarah Pfatteicher, CALS associate dean for academic affairs.

“Nikki’s experience working with faculty on curriculum development, with administrators on degree audit procedures, and with students as an academic advisor provide a strong foundation for the assistant dean role,” says Pfatteicher. “I’m particularly excited to have Nikki bring to CALS her skill in applying data and technology to academic challenges. Her interest in study abroad and international studies generally is an added benefit as the college renews its commitment to international educational opportunities for students.”

Bollig comes to CALS from the School of Business, where she has been the assistant director of BBA Academic Affairs, and recently served as interim executive assistant to the dean of the school.

“I am thrilled to be joining CALS in a role that will allow me to develop partnerships with faculty, staff and students to promote and sustain impactful educational experiences for all students,” says Bollig. “I am overjoyed to continue to serve UW-Madison and look forward to meeting folks across the college in the coming months.”

Bollig is currently the president of the Wisconsin Academic Advising Association. She holds a B.A. in International Studies, and earned her M.S. in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, both from the UW-Madison.
