Search Process

Gidget Kidd ’91, chair of the University of North Carolina Wilmington Board of Trustees, will oversee the search committee to find UNCW’s 7th chancellor. Committee members represent UNCW’s Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, students and alumni. 

Community members are encouraged to provide input throughout the process. 

The committee will make recommendations to the full Board of Trustees, which will vote on candidates to recommend to UNC System President Peter Hans. Hans will then recommend a candidate to the UNC Board of Governors, which will elect the new chancellor.
