(wfcr) - He's been on the job for nearly two years, but tonight is inaugural night for University of Massachusetts President Jack Wilson. A ceremony will be held at Symphony Hall in Boston. Wilson first came to UMass to head the school's online learning program. He succeeded William Bulger as interim president in September of 2003. Wilson has created new-technology seed fund programs at the five campuses, including funding that led to creation on the Amherst campus of CASA -- the collaborative adaptive sensing of the atmosphere engineering research center, which could revolutionize weather forecasting and lead to the creation of important homeland security tools.
