MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A vice chancellor at UW-Milwaukee will be sworn in on Tuesday to serve as an alternative U.S. representative in the United Nations.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has endorsed the nomination of Joan Prince, and a full Senate vote is expected later this month.

Prince is scheduled to be sworn in by President Obama – who originally nominated her – and by UN Ambassador Susan Rice. Once installed, she’ll immediately begin her tenure as a U.S. diplomatic representative with a rank of ambassador.

UW-Milwaukee Chancellor Mike Lovell said Prince has been, “an integral part of the UWM family for four decades.” He said she would continue to serve the university during her appointment. And Lovell said her appointment is certain to, “open more doors for international opportunities for our students, faculty, and staff.”
