In this special edition of “This Week @Minnesota,” we go behind the scenes with Eric Kaler, the 16th president of the university, during his first week on the job. We travel to the state’s largest 4th of July parade, see Goldy and a brass quartet greet the president on his first day in the office and gather U students’ thoughts on their new leader.
