Ray Oxendine has joined The University of North Carolina at Pembroke as assistant controller.
A Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Oxendine brings more than 20 years of accounting experience to the job. He is responsible for payroll, accounts payable and the Bursar’s Office, which includes student accounts and the Cashier’s Office. He reports to Controller George Guthrie.
Oxendine is a 1978 UNCP graduate where he majored in business administration. After earning a Master of Business Administration degree from East Carolina University, he earned a CPA license.
“I’m enjoying being home and working at the University,” Oxendine said. “I lived in Raleigh for 24 years, and it is great to be back.
“The University has grown in size since I was here,” he said. “When I was a student, there was a lower student to professor ratio and you knew almost everyone on campus.”
Oxendine worked as a systems accountant in the Office of the State Controller and most recently at UNC Hospitals as a business analyst.
Oxendine has more than two decades of experience as a professional accountant with experience in financial reporting, auditing, accounting, fiscal management and payroll operations.

Oxendine grew up near Red Springs and worked summers while in college at Converse. He is married to the former Paula Hunt of the Deep Branch community.
