UNC System President Ross will resign next year

The UNC Board of Governors and UNC System President Tom Ross have announced that he will leave his position in January 2016.

Ross became president of the 17-campus University of North Carolina on Jan. 1, 2011. A Greensboro native, he had served on the UNCG Board of Visitors and the UNCG Board of Trustees, of which he was chair. He received an honorary degree from UNCG.

“Tom Ross has played an important role in the success of UNCG, both as chair of the University’s Board of Trustees and as president of the UNC System. Tom has provided strong leadership during a very challenging economic climate and in the development of a strategic plan for the system. I appreciate the support that he has provided me and all of the chancellors across the system,” said UNCG Chancellor Linda P. Brady.

Ross was a North Carolina Superior Court judge for 17 years before leading the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation. He was president of Davidson College before accepting the position of UNC president.
