Upper Iowa University to inaugurate new president

FAYETTE, Iowa (AP) — A private university in northeast Iowa is inaugurating its new president.

Upper Iowa University in Fayette will hold a ceremony Friday morning for William Duffy at the Harms-Eischeid Stadium on campus.

Duffy, a retired Army colonel, was named the university’s 21st president in April. He replaced Alan Walker, who resigned in January ahead of the end of a sabbatical.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1fmlXCA ) Duffy was previously the school’s senior vice president for academic extension. He also spent more than a decade as executive director of the University of Tennessee at Martin.

The inauguration ceremony is open to the public.
