Search for UNC-Chapel Hill chancellor hears views


CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) -- The search committee shopping for a new chancellor for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill wants people to share what they hope to see in the next campus leader.

The search committee is holding four meetings on Wednesday and Thursday to hear first from staff, then area residents and alumni, followed by faculty and students.

The 21-member committee searching for a replacement for UNC-Chapel Hill Chancellor Holden Thorp last month started work in an effort to find a successor by July 1.

Thorp is resigning in June after dealing with a series of athletic, academic and financial scandals for the past two years. Faculty, employees, students and the campus trustee board asked Thorp to change his mind, but he said his decision was final.
