Moeser to step down in June, leaving legacy of Carolina’s accomplishments
James Moeser, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s ninth chancellor, will leave office on June 30, 2008. He made the announcement at his annual State of the University Address. After a year’s research leave, Moeser will return as a professor, a title he called “the most exalted this University can confer on an individual.”
Carolina and Moeser launched the Carolina Covenant, which began a national movement to make a debt-free college education possible for qualified low-income students. Other progress includes: strengthening connections with North Carolina, conducting the most successful private fund-raising campaign in University history and undertaking an unprecedented physical transformation of main campus.
