August 18, 2013

Crain's Detroit Business reports that former Wayne State University President Jay Noren will return to the WSU School of Medicine as a professor in the fall semester. Noren, president of the university from 2008-10, is currently the provost at Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi. Noren received academic tenure as a part of his contract as president, and is considered to be returning to the faculty after an unpaid leave of absence, said Debbie Dingell, chairman of the WSU board of governors. He will be teaching in the master's of public health program and will coordinate with the School of Business Administration to establish a new joint administrative medicine program that will be managed by both schools.
