The University of Minnesota Crookston inaugurated its fifth chancellor today. Fred Wood took over as chancellor in July, overseeing nearly 2,000 students.

University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler says Wood is helping to create a full range of experiences for students inside and outside of the classroom. Wood says one of his main goals is to further online learning opportunities and to continue building new facilities on campus.

Wood: "It's a wonderful place to be. I can think of no place on the planet I would rather be than be chancellor here. Everyone on this campus is so proud of this place. The students are so proud of their experiences here."

The chancellor is currently working to secure state funding for a new wellness facility.
