University of Washington Tacoma Chancellor Debra Friedman, who earlier this month announced she would work a reduced schedule while undergoing cancer treatment, has decided to take full-time medical leave to focus on her recovery.
A message from University of Washington Provost Ana Mari Cauce announcing the decision was sent to the campus community Tuesday.
Cauce’s message said that while Friedman is on medical leave, two UWT administrators will take over her leadership responsibilities. They are J.W. Harrington, vice chancellor for academic affairs, and Harlan Patterson, vice chancellor for finance and firstname.lastname@example.org
