Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Winston B. Crisp will retire later this month, according to a press release from the University.
Crisp has worked for the University for over 26 years. He joined Student Affairs in 2005 and was named vice chancellor in 2010. He also served as Dean of Students.
Cristi Hurt, the assistant vice chancellor for Student Affairs, will serve as interim vice chancellor until someone new is appointed. The University will announce plans to launch a national search in the next coming months to fill the role, according to the statement.
"While neither of us know what it will be like at Carolina without Winston by our sides, we are very happy for him and know this was a difficult decision for him to make," the statement said. "Winston will always be a part of Carolina, a true priceless gem."
