Dear Colleagues,

I share with you sad news from the College of Nursing. Dr. Jacqueline F. Clinton, Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing, and Emerita Professor of Nursing at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, passed away on July 3, 2021.

Jacque joined the UW-Milwaukee College of Nursing in 1981. She taught and mentored nursing students at the undergraduate and graduate levels and was involved in campus committees. Jacque directed the UW-Milwaukee Center for Nursing Research & Evaluation, as well as Nursing’s Center for Cultural Diversity & Health (which is now the Center for Global Health Equity). After over two decades at UWM, Jacque retired in 2003 as an emerita professor.

Jacque was a scholar of nursing research, with publications in international, national, and regional journals. She was active in Sigma Theta Tau, the honor society of nursing, and the American Nurses Association, holding offices in national and regional nursing associations. Her research on couvade, a male bonding phenomenon with pregnant partners, was presented in The New York Times, Good Morning America, CNN, and over 200 newspapers.

For additional information, please see Jacque’s obituary online. Our condolences to Jacque’s family and to the many others whose lives she touched.

Take care,

Johannes Britz
Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
