President Wilson comments on appointment of U-M President Schlissel


Wayne State University President M. Roy Wilson commented in a story about Mark S. Schlissel’s appointment as the 14th president of the University of Michigan. Schlissel’s term begins on Monday, and he will be inaugurated Sept. 5. President Wilson recently met Schlissel and believes the U-M community will experience a new type of leadership. “He’s very different from Mary Sue but I think he is going to be very effective,” Wilson said. “He is a lot like me in being kind of quiet and thoughtful.”
