Chancellor Search

Message from the Chairman

November 21, 2014 

Dear UNCP Community: 

The UNC Pembroke Board of Trustees met today for its regularly scheduled meeting. Among the topics discussed was the search for a new chancellor. The Board was fully briefed on the UNC system process requirements, as set forth in The Code.  

As a result of these discussions, the Board appointed a 19-person chancellor search committee. Rest assured that the committee will seek input from the campus and external community on the desired qualifications/attributes of the next chancellor.  The committee will consider this input as it develops the leadership profile for the position. A search consultant will assist in the development of the applicant pool and help the search committee prepare a job description and institutional profile.  

Ultimately, the full Board of Trustees will recommend finalists to President Ross.   Thereafter, the president will submit his nomination to the UNC Board of Governors for consideration.  

As a proud 1969 Alumnus of UNCP, I pledge to keep the campus community informed about each stage of the process. You are encouraged to return to this site for the latest information, including a schedule of meetings and meeting minutes 

If you have feedback you’d like to share, please contact me at
