Assistant Dean for Career and Professional Development
Office: Room 3221J, Law School
B.S., University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point
M.P.A., Indiana University
Michael Keller joined Dean Margaret Raymond's leadership team at the University of Wisconsin Law School as assistant dean of career and professional development in April 2013.
At UW Law, he aims to create the kind of programming and professional interactions necessary for students to succeed, emphasizing a strong start for first-year law students. Keller and his staff have developed a statement of professional obligations and career intake tools to set expectations and lay groundwork from the beginning. Accordingly, the Law School changed the name of the office from "Career Services" to "Career and Professional Development," reflecting this more holistic approach.
Before coming to UW Law Keller directed the Office of Career and Professional Development at Indiana University's Maurer School of Law for nearly a decade. He managed staff, developed employer relations, directed a judicial clerkship program, presented workshops, and counseled students. Prior to that, he spent over six years in career services at the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
Keller graduated summa cum laude from University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and received his MPA with highest honors from Indiana University.
