WISE, Va. (AP) — Donna Price Henry is being inaugurated as the eighth chancellor of the University of Virginia's College at Wise.

She's been on the job for more than a year since being named to succeed David Prior, who died in 2012. Her inauguration is set for Tuesday afternoon.

Henry previously spent 16 years at Florida Gulf Coast University, most recently as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

The U.Va. Board of Visitors will attend the inauguration, then hold a special meeting Wednesday at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon to set tuition rates for the next academic year.
