University Communications released an update on 6/3/14 about the Arboretum director search:

“Donna Paulnock will continue her service as interim director of the UW Arboretum, home to historic ecological restoration research and one of Madison’s most popular natural areas.

Martin Cadwallader, vice chancellor for research and dean of theGraduate School, recently informed the committee charged with identifying candidates to become the next permanent director of the Arboretum that personal issues forced the university’s top choice for the job to withdraw from consideration.”
