Wayne State president Inauguration ceremony set

DETROIT (AP) — Wayne State University is preparing for the inauguration of school President Dr. M. Roy Wilson.

Wilson is scheduled to be sworn in April 4 during a ceremony on Wayne State's campus in Detroit's Midtown.

Ohio State University's incoming President Michael Drake will deliver the keynote.

Wayne State's Board of Governors unanimously elected Wilson in June. He has focused on growing research at the 28,000-student school since taking the job.

Pre-inauguration events are to begin April 3 and include a concert and faculty research symposium.

Wilson formerly was deputy director for strategic scientific planning and program coordination at the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities of the National Institutes of Health. He also has served as dean of Creighton University's School of Medicine.
