WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The UNC Board of Governors has named Dr. Gary Miller Chancellor at UNC Wilmington. Miller is Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs and Research at Wichita State University. Miller will make $275,000 a year in the post.

"This university, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, is a university with a soul. It's a university on the move. It's a university with promises to keep and a university with a national imperative," Miller said. "It would be my great pleasure, members of the board, to engage you in this conversation."

The Board of Governors met on campus this afternoon to make the selection from a list of three finalist determined by the UNCW Board of Trustees.

Miller will replace Rosemary DePaolo, who is retiring this summer.
