By LDOC of last year, a handful of UNC administrators left the University, including one of the most important figures on and off campus: the chancellor. Former Chancellor Carol Folt left in January, and since then, interim leaders have filled the positions left behind in the wake of the administrative fallout. As the school year begins, the search for a permanent replacement for chancellor will also start, and students, faculty and graduates make up the group to recommend candidates to the Board of Trustees. From there, a series of approvals through the University president and Board of Governors will culminate in a new chancellor. Kevin Guskiewicz, who has served as interim chancellor since Folt's resignation, said he is interested in being considered as a candidate for the next chancellor. Though the search process has not officially begun, Board of Trustees Chairperson Richard Stevens said he hopes Guskiewicz officially applies to be the permanent chancellor when the time comes.
