“With both great continuity in our board leadership and some new thinking coming to the table, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is in tremendous position to not only build on 125 years of history, but truly enter a new phase of growth, development and excellence,” said Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. “We are grateful to Speaker Moore and Senator Berger for supporting these appointments and helping ensure that this University has the kind of passionate, committed and bold leadership it needs. Our academic reputation is on the rise; our enrollment is growing; and with 75 percent of our alumni living in North Carolina, our impact on this state is significant. I am truly excited about working with this board to ensure that the future for UNC Greensboro and the community we serve is bright and that we achieve our goals together.”
