The turnover in UNC's administration continues with the resignation of Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Vice Chancellor G. Rumay Alexander, the University announced in an email Thursday afternoon.
Alexander will leave at the end of the year in order to focus on her academic career and service as president of the National League for Nursing, the email said.
Alexander is the fifth member of the UNC administration to step down in the 2018-2019 school year, joining former Chancellor Carol Folt, former Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and former UNC-system President Margaret Spellings.
Alexander was named CDO in 2017 after serving as Interim CDO for a year during a University-wide search for a new CDO.
During her time as CDO, Alexander helped launch the newly rebranded University Office for Diversity and Inclusion. She was instrumental in bringing speakers such as former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former NAACP President Ben Jealous to campus, the email from the University said.
