The University of Minnesota, founded in the belief that understanding enriches all people, is dedicated to the advancement of learning and the search for truth; to the sharing of this knowledge through education for a diverse community; and to the application of this knowledge to benefit the people of the state, the nation, and the world. (University of Minnesota Mission Statement, Board of Regents Policy, January 1994) In January Chancellor Charles H. Casey announces his plans to retire on June 30, 2012. A national search takes place leading to the appointment of Fred E. Wood as chancellor. Wood, who holds a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry, comes to the U of M from the University of California, Davis, where he had most recently served as vice chancellor of student affairs during his 26-year career there. Chancellor Wood takes the helm of the Crookston campus on July 2, 2012.
