It doesn’t take M. Roy Wilson long to cover the stretch of Wayne State University’s campus between his on-campus apartment and his office in the administration building. Both are in the far northern end of the Midtown Detroit campus.
But WSU’s new president is taking in a much broader view of the campus. As Wilson heads to meeting after meeting with the university’s deans, he’s walking to their offices scattered across campus, even when he headed over to the medical school, which is off the main campus.
“I’ve been stopping as I walk, talking to faculty, students,” Wilson, who was selected as WSU’s 12th president in June, told the Free Press. “I’ve been building in extra time to make sure I can do it. It’s a good way for me to see the campus.”
