WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina native is set to be installed as chancellor of Winston-Salem State University.

Installation for Elwood L. Robinson as the historically black university’s 13th chancellor is scheduled for Friday at 3:30 p.m.

Officials from UNC’s General Administration and universities from throughout the region are expected to attend. The school said at least two busloads of friends and family from Robinson’s hometown of Ivanhoe are expected.

Robinson replaced Donald Reaves, who left after eight years as chancellor, in January.

Robinson graduated magna cum laude from North Carolina Central University in 1978, earned a doctorate in clinical psychology from Pennsylvania State University and returned to the N.C. Central faculty, where he stayed for 28 years.

He spent about two years at Cambridge College, a private Massachusetts school with 5,000 students.
