Message from the Chairman of the Board of Trustees

Welcome to the Chancellor Search website.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I encourage you to visit this website for periodic updates on the progress of the search for our eighth chancellor. We have assembled a dynamic and representative Chancellor Search Committee and look forward to engaging with the community throughout the search process.

UNC Asheville is a leader in the public liberal arts. We will look to our eighth chancellor to continue to advance the position of this university and build upon the momentum we are experiencing in new and exciting ways.

We have a vibrant strategic plan founded on our core values of diversity and inclusion, innovation and sustainability. We are committed to our strategic directions of academic rigor, student success, community engagement and organizational capacity. Our mission-driven approach centers our work on teaching, research and service. Our faculty, staff, students, and alumni are innovators, difference makers and leaders in their respective fields. Our community partnerships are deep and meaningful. We work at the heart of Asheville and Buncombe County and serve a unique and important educational role within the UNC System, in the state of North Carolina, and the country. 

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we appreciate your interest, enthusiasm and support for UNC Asheville as we embark upon this important search for our next leader.

Go Bulldogs!

Chair, UNC Asheville Board of Trustees
