Paydar Installed As IUPUI Chancellor

Will Focus On Quality Education/Community Engagement
IUPUI has a new chancellor.  
 
Dr. Nasser Paydar is being installed as the university's fifth chancellor during a campus ceremony Tuesday. Paydar says during his term he hopes to emphasize student success and community engagement.
 
IUPUI's student body is roughly 30,000, 75% of whom are undergraduates.  Nasser says they're addressing the so-called "brain drain" in Indiana.  He says 90% of IUPUI graduates remain in Indiana.
 
Paydar suceeds Charles Bantz who stepped down after 12 years in the position.  Paydar served as IUPUI's executive vice chancellor before accepting the new position.
