Event description

Description

How does faith inform the work of our civic, academic, and marketplace leaders? What faith-inspired lessons have our key leaders learned throughout their lives and how do they play out in the everyday demands of public engagement? Join us for our new Upper House series entitled, Faith in the Heart of the City.

Our second guest, Chief Mike Koval, has been the Madison Chief of Police since April 2014, and who first began his career with the Madison Police Department in 1983. Within the Police Department, he has a decorated career in a variety of roles: police officer, field training officer, field training supervisor, SWAT hostage negotiator, critical response team supervisor, primary legal instructor, and sergeant.

Our event will be moderated by Phil Haslanger, pastor of Memorial United Church of Christ and former city editor, editorial page editor, and managing editor at The Capital Times.

* This is a free brownbag lunch event. Beverages and desserts will be provided by Upper House.


Michael C. Koval began his career with the Madison Police Department in 1983. His educational background includes being a proud graduate of Madison West High School (which he still proclaims to be the best high school in Madison), a graduate of UW-Madison with a Journalism Degree and obtaining his Law Degree from William Mitchell College of Law. Before becoming the Chief of Police in April of 2014 he was a Special Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and subsequently returned to MPD and served in Patrol Services. Koval then became the Sergeant of Recruitment and Training for 17 years.

Chief Koval is a native of Wisconsin. He enjoys all kinds of sports (in his college days he was Bucky Badger for football, basketball, and hockey for three years), but dating back to his childhood days he is particularly passionate about Notre Dame Football! GO BUCKY!! GO IRISH!!
