Stephen Farmer is the University’s new director of undergraduate admissions. Jerry Lucido, who has held the position since 1997, will be vice provost for admissions and enrollment management.
Lucido, who had been splitting his time between the two jobs for the past three years, will “assume lead responsibility on a full-time basis in matters concerning policies that affect student enrollment and retention issues,” said Provost Robert Shelton.
Farmer will assume Lucido’s former duties in the admissions office after being appointed assistant provost and director of undergraduate admissions. Farmer has been senior associate director of the admissions office since 2000. He came to Carolina after working in the admissions office at the University of Virginia.
Lucido will continue to oversee the offices of Undergraduate Admissions, Scholarships and Student Aid, and the registrar’s office.
