Bill Pink is the 19th President of Ferris State University.

The start of the academic year is just around the corner. And just a few weeks ago, Bill Pink began his tenure as the new President of Ferris State University in Big Rapids. Before coming to Ferris, Pink was the President of Grand Rapids Community College. A core tenant of President Pink's educational philosophy is the question: "are we relevant and are we responsive?" Rick Brewer recently stopped by President Pink’s office to learn what lies ahead for Ferris State University.

Rick Brewer has been news director at WCMU since February 2024.
