Now Carolina and the University of Kansas will have much more in common than Roy Williams. UNC Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bernadette Gray-Little, who previously served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, is leaving Carolina after some 38 years to become Chancellor of Kansas. She will be the first woman and the first African American to hold that position. We will miss her but of course we wish her the very best. Kansas is getting an outstanding new leader.
Meanwhile, Bruce Carney, our Interim Dean of the College, will serve as Interim Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost while the University searches for the next Provost. He’ll have to put off that long overdue sabbatical for another year. Learn more.
And Karen Gil, our Senior Associate Dean for Social Sciences and International Programs, will become our new Dean of the College on July 1. Her appointment was officially approved by the Board of Trustees last month. We look forward to her continued leadership in this new role. Learn more.
