Jennifer Mnookin won’t have to ask for directions to Bascom Hall on her first day of work August 4th. She got the lay of the land — geographically during a tour of campus, and thematically with introductions and issue briefings — during an eight-day visit last week to the university she will lead as chancellor. Her to-do list ranged from meetings with students, staff and stakeholders to such mundane but essential new employee rituals as having her Wiscard photo taken. And from a Saturday morning stroll at the Farmers Market to dinner with a rooftop view of the Capitol, she began settling in as a Madisonian. 📸: Jeff Miller
