Dr. Joan Prince
Director of Global Inclusion at UW-Milwaukee

Arguably one of Milwaukee’s the most influential people, Dr. Joan Prince’s leadership ability is recognized around the world.  She was nominated by President Obama to serve as Ambassador to the United Nations and was appointed to the US Delegation to the Commission on the Status of Women by Senator John Kerry.  She also boasts an 18-year tenure as the Vice Chancellor of Global Inclusion and Engagement at UW-Milwaukee.

Her biography is rich with academic accolades, community leadership, awards and professional accomplishments.  In a word, her career has been phenomenal.  Join us for an early morning jolt of inspiration as we hear from Dr. Joan about the importance of service and having a global view of leadership.


Dr. Prince serves as Vice Chancellor at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, appointed in 2000. She is the chief administrator for the Divisions of Global Inclusion and Engagement and Partnerships and Innovation, with responsibilities as the Chief Inclusion Officer. She also leads campus-wide project areas such as the STEM Inspire Pipeline, the Inclusive Internationalization Project, Global Partnerships in STEM, Center for International Health, and Equity/Diversity Services.

Prior to this, Dr. Prince held responsibilities as the Project Director, lead strategist and implementer for the Health Professions Partnerships Initiative collaborative at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, as well as Clinical Laboratory supervisor for a five-hospital regional healthcare system in Milwaukee.

Prince has received numerous awards from civic and professional organizations such as The Business Journal’s Woman of Influence award, the Community Leadership award (Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund), and the Friends of the Hispanic Community award. She is also spotlighted as an honoree in the national African American oral history archival project, The History Makers.

In 2012, Dr. Prince was nominated by President Barack Obama to the key administrative post of Alternate Representative to the 67th General Assembly of the United Nations, with the honorary rank of Ambassador. She also served as a member of the 2013 United States Delegation to the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), appointed by Secretary John Kerry and Ambassador Susan E. Rice.

A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Prince was the first African American recipient of a Bachelor’s Degree in Medical Technology and Masters in Clinical Laboratory Sciences, with a specialty in Hematology and Flow Cytometry from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. She also holds a doctorate degree in Urban Education, with a specialty in Medical Science Education from UWM.
