(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Missouri Western State University welcomed their new president, Matthew Wilson, on Monday. President Wilson succeeds Dr. Robert Vartabedian, who retired after 11 years as Western’s president.
The school introduced Wilson on his first day of the job to several faculty and staff in the Biology department, where he heard first-hand accounts of the research projects current students are working on.
“As I come in, I’m really looking forward to engaging with the students, ensuring that they know that we are here for their success,” Wilson said.
