HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall University’s next president says his goals include increasing enrollment and building on the existing liberal arts and STEM programs to create a more broad-based education.

Media outlets report that Jerome Gilbert made the remarks at a meeting with about 200 people on campus Wednesday.

It was Gilbert’s second visit to Marshall since he was named the university 37th president in October. He was on campus the weekend of Nov. 14 and attended the memorial plane crash ceremony.

Gilbert will begin his duties Jan. 11. Gary White has been serving as interim president since the December 2014 death of President Stephen Kopp.
