The office responsible for tuition and student fee revenues at UW-Madison has a new leader.
Carla Perez, director of student accounts and university cashier at Rice University in Houston, has been named bursar at UW-Madison, beginning her new job on Aug. 1.
She replaces interim bursar Laura Rader who has been in the job since November.
"I am excited to have Carla join UW-Madison and lead the Bursar's Office," said Martha Kerner, assistant vice chancellor for business services at the university. "Her extensive experience in higher education, financial management and student services will serve our campus well."
According to a UW-Madison news release, Perez has more than 25 years of experience in tuition and fees cashiering, student accounts and student loan services.
"It is an honor to have been selected to lead the Bursar's Office," Perez said. "I've been aware of the university's reputation as a world-class institution for much of my career, and I'm committed to serving students and the campus community to the best of my ability."
The Bursar's Office has 18 full-time employees and collects about $650 million annually in student tuition and fee revenue, managing tuition accounts for about 43,000 students and managing campus-based student loan processing.
