North Carolina A&T has named a nursing school dean from Michigan as its new provost and vice chancellor of academic affairs.
The board of trustees approved the appointment of Linda Thompson Adams during a meeting Friday.
Adams had been dean of nursing and a professor at Oakland University in Troy, Mich., since 2003.
Chancellor Harold Martin told the News & Record of Greensboro that N.C. A&T hopes to take advantage of Adams' expertise in obtaining grants, scholarships and fundraising during the tough economic times.
