Initial List of Leadership Characteristics

At the board’s retreat Sept. 15, trustees discussed an initial list of leadership characteristics and abilities they believe are important for UNC’s next president. This is not a final list, nor is it all-encompassing; it is intended to provide a starting point for broad discussion about what is needed from UNC’s next leader. After the board has the opportunity to consult with the campus members of the Search Committee on Sept. 26, there will be provide multiple opportunities for broad input on this list. It's being shared now to encourage campus to begin thinking about it.
