UWM Chancellor diagnosed with cancer

By Bradley Wooten

University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Chancellor Carlos Santiago announced today that he will have surgery Tuesday, Oct. 24 to rectify the cancer in his prostate.

Following his surgery, he will take four to six weeks off from campus while UWM Provost Rita Chang serves in his stead.

"I do have two requests," Santiago wrote in an e-mail. "First, I urge all of you to make sure that you participate in periodic cancer screening tests. And, second, please do not send flowers."
