A newly formed search committee to find the University’s 12th chancellor is scheduled to hold its first meeting Sept. 5.
Trustees Chair Richard Stevens ’70 (’74 MPA, ’74 JD) will oversee the 20-member committee, which will make recommendations to the full Board of Trustees. The trustees will vote on candidates to recommend to UNC System Interim President William Roper. Roper then will recommend a candidate to the UNC System Board of Governors, which will elect the new chancellor.
In 1945, the state designated three campuses for newly created chancellorships — at UNC and at what were then N.C. State College in Raleigh and Woman’s College in Greensboro. At Chapel Hill, Robert B. House (class of 1916) had served as executive secretary (1926-34) and then as dean of administration until 1945. He would serve until 1957 as UNC’s first chancellor and, to date, has been the University’s longest-serving chancellor.
Members of the search committee, which includes trustees, faculty, staff, students and alumni, are:
Information about the search process will be posted at chancellorsearch.unc.edu.
