DURHAM N.C.
Charlie Nelms, a former top university administrator in Michigan
and Indiana, has been formally
installed as the new chancellor at North Carolina
Central University.

Nelms, 60, replaces James Ammons, now president of Florida
A&M University
in Tallahassee, and is the 10th
person to be the state school’s top leader. Nelms is former vice president at Indiana
University and former chancellor at
the University of Michigan

“I did not come here to rest, and I did not come here
to retire,” Nelms told a ceremony Wednesday. “I came here to
work.”

Fundraising will be one of his goals at N.C. Central. He was
credited with helping raise $75 million at the Michigan
campus.
