Chancellor Search

Dr. Volety’s emphasis on the student experience, his connections to UNCW, and his professional experiences at both public and private institutions inspired the committee's support for him, according to Gidget Kidd ’91, Chair of the Board of Trustees and the Chancellor Search Committee.

“Dr. Volety impressed the committee with his understanding of the complex challenges facing universities today,” she said. “He has the experience and vision to guide UNCW into its next 75 years of success.”

We truly believe that this is a unifying moment for our campus community. We are confident that we conducted this important process with integrity, collaboration, and appropriate transparency. There has been an unprecedented level of consensus, collegiality and unanimity during every step of the search. The search committee and the trustees have been guided throughout this process by their commitment to UNCW and its high standards.
