I would've said no, but recent scrutiny on the topic of criminal history may change that. Generally, the University is more open to hiring ex-offenders than the private sector, as they're in the business of elevating people, that's a popular sentiment in this environment.

As I understand, in Wisconsin, there are laws prohibiting employers from refusing to hire on account of criminal history, unless the offense relates directly to the nature of the work. Realistically, employers can evade this restriction because they don't have to explain why they don't want to hire you.

You have a chance, yes.
