Message from the Chancellor:
Professor Templeton to Lead Bain Study Response

July 24, 2009

Colleagues,

I am pleased to let you know that Joe Templeton, immediate past Chair of the Faculty and former chair of the Department of Chemistry, has agreed to a part-time role as special assistant to the chancellor for planning and initiatives.

Joe’s primary charge is to manage our response to the Bain & Company report. I think it’s imperative that we move quickly to analyze the options presented in the report and to act on those that will help us be a more efficient, effective institution. You know as well as I do that the economic situation isn’t getting any better. The Bain report has given us insight into ways to save and possibly redirect those savings into our academic mission.

Joe’s knowledge of the University is extensive, and I can’t think of a better colleague to have working next to me. His deep understanding of Carolina’s operations and culture is especially important as we examine the Bain report.

Joe will continue to teach and direct graduate students. While his nine-month salary will not change, he will be paid a stipend for this work.

As we develop our response to the Bain report, I pledge to keep you informed. And please keep e-mailing us your ideas about the budget and the Bain report to budgetideas@unc.edu.

Sincerely,

Holden Thorp
