Over the course of two jam-packed days, UNC System President Margaret Spellings got a chance to spend time with her neighbor up the hill.
And the neighbor got a chance to meet her – and show off a little bit.
“I’m here to visit and learn about the amazing things that are happening here — with scholarships, innovation, student learning, partnerships with the military, with the arts community, with the scientific community and on and on,” Spellings said while spending March 22 and 23 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, her latest stop on a state-wide listening tour during which she plans to see all 17 campuses within her first hundred days on the job. Spellings took office March 1. “It’s just a tremendous example of the mighty engine that the University of North Carolina system is.”
