UNCSA Chancellor Search Committee schedules public forums
The University of North Carolina School of the Arts Chancellor Search Committee has announced three public forums to gather input about the current state of the campus, the role of the chancellor, and the background, experience and skill sets for candidates.
Constituent forums, open to the general public as well as UNCSA alumni, donors, faculty, staff and students, will be held on the UNCSA campus at 1533 South Main St. in Winston-Salem, as follows:
- Monday, Nov. 11, 8:30 to 10 a.m. in Main Theatre of the Film Village
- Monday, Nov. 11, 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Main Theatre of the Film Village
- Monday, Nov. 18, Noon to 1:30 p.m. in Eisenberg Social Hall of Hanes Student Commons.
Search Committee Chair Ralph Womble, who also chairs the UNCSA Board of Trustees, said attendees will have the opportunity to speak directly to representatives from the Chancellor Search Committee and the search firm Buffkin Baker. “We are very interested in your input about the qualities, characteristics, and experiences you would like to see in our next Chancellor. Your participation and input are invaluable,” he said.
Those who are unable to attend one of the forums can comment online.
The search committee will hold additional listening sessions on campus with students, staff, faculty, deans and the administrative cabinet. UNCSA launched the search for its ninth chancellor on Oct. 30. The University of North Carolina Board of Governors is scheduled to announce the appointment at its meeting on May 20, 2020.
