DURHAM, N.C. -- A top administrator at Western Carolina University has been chosen as the new chancellor at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
The UNC Board of Governors on Friday selected Kyle Carter to become the new leader at UNC Pembroke. The board announced that Carter will take over in July after six years as provost and senior vice chancellor at Western Carolina.
Carter started his academic career as a psychology professor and had stints at universities in Georgia, Colorado, and Missouri.
UNC Pembroke was founded in 1887 to educate Robeson County's Lumbee residents and in the 1940s it was the only state-supported four-year college for Native Americans in the country. The school now enrolls nearly 6,700 students.
