Sorry, I’m concentrating on my moves. Turn your hands towards you, and then go like this. Just flap your wings. Oh, oh. OK. Uptown funk you.. oh. Every time, every time. *Honks* You mind if we turn this on? … and you’d say ‘Yes’ I’ll gesture toward it. *Laughs* So how’s your journey been at UWM? Is this off the record? No, everything’s being recorded. No, I love everyone here. I’m not a good dancer. I don’t have rhythm, you know? So … Everyone wave! Great job. Great job. Thank you, everybody.

  1. It is wonderful having a chancellor, who can help us all share in the joy of education with our students. Thank you Mark Mone!

  2. You all make me want to return and do it all over again! 😉 Great job highlighting UWM and Milwaukee! I didn't know we had a Panther Stadium! Overdue for a visit…. Class of '01

  3. UWM has the coolest Chancellor in the University system! Chancellor Mone really connects to us as students. What a fun way to kick-off graduation! So proud he came out of my school — former Dean of The Lubar School of Business! I will NEVER stop believing!

  4. Best chancellor ever! Not just because it cares about students, but all things he does for UWM, seriously, the situation has really improved since he has been the chancellor. Thanks Mark!

  5. AWESOME…. love the FUNK! I can just imagine the police pulling up along side. "Whach'all doin?"
    "HAVIN' FUN with our Chancellor on the way to graduation!"
    COOL!
    CONGRATULATIONS graduates.
    Great to see the Chancellor feeling the groove while driving.
