UNCSA Chancellor Search

Search Process

In accordance with state law and policy, the UNC System chancellor search process follows a prescribed series of steps that are critical to our success in recruiting and selecting top candidates. 

Ralph Womble, chair of the UNCSA Board of Trustees, will oversee the search committee to find our ninth chancellor. Committee members represent the University‚Äôs Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, students and alumni.

Community members will be able to provide input throughout the process.

The search committee will make recommendations to the full UNCSA Board of Trustees, which will vote on candidates to recommend to UNC System Interim President Bill Roper. Roper will then recommend a candidate to the UNC Board of Governors, which will elect the new chancellor. The UNC Board of Governors is slated to vote on the appointment on May 20, 2020.
