Dr. Ellen Censky (BS ’79) Named CEO of MPM

After a nationwide search, Dr. Ellen J. Censky has been named President and CEO of the Milwaukee Public Museum. Censky, who has served as interim President and CEO since September of 2018, was selected through an extensive search process that yielded a field of 118 applicants, including leaders of cultural and scientific institutions from the top five U.S. markets and around the world.

She previously led flourishing natural history museums in Connecticut and Oklahoma prior to her role with MPM, and will be the first female President and CEO in MPM’s 137-year history.
