City U. of New York Names U. of Nebraska Leader as New Chancellor

The City University of New York on Wednesday named James B. Milliken, president of the University of Nebraska system, as its next chancellor. Milliken heads the four-campus Nebraska system, which, despite counting a Big Ten research university among its members, has a largely open-access mission, as does CUNY. He previously was a senior administrator at the University of North Carolina system.

Milliken replaces the interim chancellor William P. Kelly, who took that role after Matthew Goldstein retired after 14 years in CUNY's top job.

Michigan Will Review Procedures for Terrible Weather

Last week, campuses throughout the Midwest shut down due to dangerously cold weather, but the University of Michigan remained open -- to the frustration of many of its employees and students. Now the university says it is reviewing its procedures for closing during bad weather, MLive.com reported. Provost Martha Pollack told a faculty committee that one reason the university didn't close last week was the lack of procedures to do so. "We didn't have the appropriate mechanisms, even if we wanted to close the university," she said. "That said, after this was all over, I and some of the other executive officers really strongly believe that we ... need to revisit this policy." The university last closed for weather-related reasons in 1978.

West Virginia Chemical Spill and Colleges

A “Do Not Drink” ban was put in place Thursday after a chemical spill contaminated a West Virginia river, leaving 300,000 people -- and several campuses -- without safe tap water. The University of Charleston's spring semester was scheduled to start on Jan. 13, but university officials were asked to instead open campus on Jan. 16. Students who live on campus were sent to a residence hall on a new campus in Beckley, W.V., an hour south of Charleston. On Friday, a quick count showed that at least 60 students had been displaced, but that number rapidly increased to more than 150 over the weekend. Those students can return this evening.

Another school that has had to delay its spring semester is Marshall University’s South Charleston campus. It had to close although the main Marshall campus was not affected.

West Virginia State University also closed and classes will begin Jan. 21.
