Want to know what the University of North Carolina’s Board of Governors is looking for in its next leader?
Here’s the 46-page leadership statement (scroll down to read) adopted Thursday by a board subcommittee that spells out what qualifications, qualities and values are desired for whoever replaces outgoing UNC President Tom Ross.
The statement was developed by taking input from a number of stakeholder groups, from the board itself, as well as faculty, students, alumni, business leaders and the general public.
As would be expected, there was significant variety in what different groups are looking for in the next UNC president.
According to the lengthy leadership statement, students want an energetic leader, who “values diversity and accessibility in the UNC system.”
