UNC President Thomas W. Ross announced on March 23 that Dr. Dana Dunn, provost and executive vice chancellor of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, has been named acting chancellor of the university, effective immediately.

In announcing Dunn's appointment, Ross said: “UNC Greensboro is fortunate that Provost Dana Dunn has agreed to assume even greater responsibilities during this period of leadership transition. Given her extensive administrative experience and service as UNCG's chief academic officer, she is exceptionally well qualified to assume oversight of the campus. The university will be in very good hands, and I am grateful that she has accepted this critical assignment.”

“UNCG is a strong university with a very important mission,” said Dunn. “I look forward to working with the campus community to continue the momentum evidenced by our enrollment growth, student successes and graduate accomplishments, and life-changing research contributions. It is a privilege to lead our committed campus community as we await the arrival of a permanent chancellor.”
