The faculty, staff and students are doing some fantastic things to serve North Carolina, and I’m going out on the road to tell folks how committed we are to the state. As Carolina’s new chancellor, I will visit with high school and university students, as well as my fellow UNC system chancellors and Tar Heel alumni.
I will go to Asheville, Charlotte, Elizabeth City, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Morehead City and Wilmington – as well as Chapel Hill between September 29 and October 6.
Carolina is doing much to serve North Carolina, and we are committed to doing more. This tour is one way to strengthen partnerships with our sister UNC institutions and, together, help lead the state into the future. This is an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment. This state created and supports a world-class public research university – a university that will help North Carolina meet its toughest challenges, now and in the future. I want people to understand that and to be proud of the state’s investment and support of the University.
You may wonder why a North Carolina native who has spent most of his life in our state needs a tour. The answer is, I’ve still got a lot to learn about the University and the state.
This time, I will visit many of my fellow chancellors across the UNC system. We will talk about how our universities can work together for the good of the state.
