NC State Installs New Chancellor

North Carolina State University formally installs a new chancellor who's been on the job for months and already seen a lot of changes.

Chancellor Randy Woodson is being celebrated at a ceremony Tuesday in Reynolds Coliseum.

Woodson was a provost at Purdue University when he was picked in January to lead the Raleigh campus. He started his job in April.

N.C. State has since dropped athletic director Lee Fowler after a 10-year run and dismissed a grievance filed last year by former first lady Mary Easley.

Woodson succeeded James Woodward, who served as interim chancellor after the resignation of James Oblinger. Oblinger resigned amid questions over his role in the hiring of Easley, a controversy that also caused the school's provost and trustee chairman to resign.
