Michigan State University is preparing for a new era with academic leader, neuroscientist and concussion researcher Kevin Guskiewicz as its next president.

During a special virtual meeting, MSU’s divided Board of Trustees unanimously agreed Friday to hire Guskiewicz, 57, of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, as MSU’s 22nd president.

Guskiewicz will be MSU’s sixth president in as many years.

After years of instability in MSU leadership, trustees expressed optimism for the future under the upcoming tenure of Guskiewicz, who has served UNC-Chapel Hill for 28 years, including the last four as chancellor. He begins his tenure on March 4.
