APPLETON, Wis.- The new president of Lawrence University is inaugurated today. Mark Burstein is now the 16th president of the university.
He's a former Princeton executive vice president. Delegates representing more than 60 colleges and universities from across the country attended the pomp and circumstance.
President Burstein also received a congratulations video from Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy.
"Lawrence is an extraordinary institution, and one with a real, rich history, and set of traditions, so it just makes you think about, and what it means to re president of such an institution," said Burstein.
President Burstein says one goal of his is to strengthen the school's bond with the Fox Cities.
