Chancellor Randy Woodson has been elected to a leadership position in the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.
Woodson was elected secretary of the Council of Presidents, the membership group for university presidents and chancellors within the association. The position puts Woodson in line to eventually become chairman of the association’s board of directors.
Woodson’s election to a leadership position comes at a key time for the association, which will celebrate the 150th anniversary next year of President Lincoln signing the Morrill Act in 1862. The Morrill Act established the land-grant system of colleges.
