The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Carolina) is seeking candidates for its most senior academic leadership position, Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost. Reporting directly to the Chancellor, the Provost is responsible for leading the academic mission, overseeing academic administration, and chairing the Budget Committee, with ultimate responsibility for resource allocation. Candidates should have a record of successful academic leadership at a major research university, preferably with an academic health center, demonstrated management skills, the ability to develop a compelling vision for public higher education, and a commitment to excellence, access and inclusion.

The University is enjoying impressive and unprecedented success. The strength of the University's premier faculty has been sustained through highly successful recruiting and active retention efforts. Research funding is at an all-time high, reaching $759 million in 2012, reflecting the quality and dedication of the faculty and the University's multidisciplinary approach. Students of extraordinary quality and diversity are eager to enroll. While budgets have been cut over the last few years, the Universityremains on sound financial footing. Donors continue to support the University generously at near record levels. With almost 30,000 students, Carolina has a distinguished faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences and the 12 professional schools, and ranks first among public colleges and universities that offer high-quality academic programs at an affordable price (Kiplinger's Personal Finance). The University is a member of the AAU. The Provost will play a crucial role in leading the nation's first public university at a pivotal moment in its history and in the history of American higher education.

The Provost will succeed Dr. Bruce Carney, who has served Carolina with distinction as a longtime faculty member and administrator and will return to the faculty in summer 2013. A search is simultaneously under way for a successor to Chancellor Holden Thorp, who will step down on July 1, 2013, following an outstanding career of service to Carolina. The timing of the Provost search will provide an opportunity for a new Chancellor to select from a finalist pool developed by the Search Committee during spring 2013, with an appointment expected to begin in summer 2013.

Candidates should provide a curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities andrequirements described in the Leadership Statement, and the names and contact information of five references. References will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of candidates.
