WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) The man who led UW-Marathon County from 2000-2007 has died of cancer in Texas. Jim Veninga was living near Austin. He was 69.

One of his proudest achievements at UWMC was the development of the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy & Service. The UW Center for Civic Engagement was built as part of that plan.

Veninga had a masters degree from the Harvard Divinity School and a doctorate in history and religious studies from Rice.

A memorial service will be held in Wausau at a later date.
