University of Minnesota regents pick Rebecca Cunningham as new president

Rebecca Cunningham's experience as a doctor and a senior administrator overseeing research at another Big Ten school put her over the edge as University of Minnesota regents chose her Monday to serve as the next U president.

"I'm feeling very excited, and a fair amount of relief, and just really honored," Cunningham said during a news conference shortly after the vote Monday.

Regents selected Cunningham, the vice president for research and innovation at the University of Michigan, from a pool of three finalists, all with deep experience in different facets of higher education.
