Chancellor Folt’s installation address: Carolina Strong – Ever Fresh, Forward and for the People

“Together, we can make history”

In her University Day installation address, Chancellor Carol Folt paid tribute to Carolina’s history as the nation’s first public university and laid out an ambitious agenda for the future.

“I believe that Carolina can indeed be the leader in shaping the path for the great public university in America. We can show how you do it — to be the one that preserves excellence and innovation, access and affordability, a deep commitment to the state, and gathers strength to innovate and meet new challenges.”

Folt addressed a crowd of 2,500 in Polk Place on Saturday, Oct. 12, after she took the oath of office as the University’s 11th chancellor.
