Fred E. Wood, Ph.D., was officially installed as the fifth chancellor of the University of Minnesota Crookston on Thursday, April 18.

Days like Thursday don't come around often at the University of Minnesota Crookston – only five times in all – so there was plenty of pomp and circumstance for the inauguration of Dr. Fred Wood as the fifth chancellor in the campus' history. Dignitaries from across the U of M system and from Wood's previous employer, the University of California, Davis, converged on campus, along with leaders from the
community and region for lunch, the inauguration
ceremony, and a reception. The new student residence, Heritage Hall, was also dedicated.
