We are all pleased that UNCG completed a successful SACS accreditation process this year. Although the review was successful, the process revealed the university has become much more complex over the past decade and highlighted the need to centralize strategic compliance under a unified accountability structure. To address these specific needs, I have asked Chief of Staff Bonita Brown to assume responsibility for strategic leadership and management of university-wide compliance functions.

In this expanded role, Bonita will oversee several direct reports, including a director of compliance with oversight of Title IX; the associate chief of staff, who manages the university policy process; a Board liaison, who assists with the logistics and strategies of Board of Trustee meetings; and the chair of the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. Together, these functions will create an organization structure that encourages, supports and promotes a strong model for governance and compliance across the entire campus.

Bonita will maintain her responsibilities as chief of staff and assistant secretary to the Board of Trustees. To reflect the expanded scope of her role, she has been given the additional title of vice chancellor, with her annual compensation remaining at its current level.

Bonita, who holds a bachelor’s degree and J.D. from Wake Forest University, is exceptionally qualified for this expanded role. Since joining UNCG in 2010, she has led the successful development and implementation of university policies and handled a wide range of matters for the Chancellor’s Office. Please join me in congratulating Bonita on her expanded role.
