UNC to hold public forums on presidential search

The search for a UNC system president is under way, and here’s your chance to weigh in on the qualities, skills and experience needed in the next leader.

A UNC Board of Governors committee will host four regional forums to hear public input in the search for the next president of the 17-campus UNC system, who will succeed outgoing UNC President Tom Ross.

Here is the schedule:

▪ May 26 – 7 p.m. at UNC Asheville’s Sherrill Center.

▪ May 27 – 7 p.m. at East Carolina University’s East Carolina Heart Institute in Greenville.

▪ May 28 – 7 p.m. at N.C. Central University’s Mary Townes Science Complex in Durham.

▪ June 1 – 7 p.m. at UNC Charlotte’s Harris Alumni Center.

More detailed information about each forum is available online at www.northcarolina.edu/presidential-search. Each session will be streamed live and archived on the website. Participants may comment via social media (#uncsearch) or via text to 919-590-3630.
