Woodson to Visit N.C. Research Campus in Kannapolis

Dr. Randy Woodson, North Carolina State University’s 14th chancellor, will begin a series of visits across the state to meet with North Carolinians, learn more about the university’s role and reach, and reaffirm the university’s commitment to meeting the state’s needs.

On Tuesday, April 27, Woodson will visit the North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, where he will tour the cutting-edge research labs and learn more about how NC State advances knowledge about making fruits and vegetables more healthy and less prone to disease and drought, among other innovations at the campus. Media coverage is invited at 3 p.m. in the NC State building, home to the Plants for Human Health Institute.

Woodson began his job at NC State on April 5. A horticultural scientist, Woodson served as chief academic officer, dean, department head and professor in his 25-year career at Purdue University in Indiana. He plans on touring the state in the next few months to talk to people about NC State’s goals of providing quality education, groundbreaking research and problem-solving service, and to hear how NC State can be even more responsive to North Carolinians.
