PEMBROKE — Cammie Hunt, a Robeson County native, has been named associate vice chancellor for Engaged Outreach at The University of North Carolina at Pembroke. She leaves the post of acting dean of the School of Business.
A 14-year UNCP employee, Hunt will lead the Office of Distance Education and the Regional Center for Economic, Community and Professional Development at COMtech.
“I am delighted that Cammie Hunt has accepted this position,” said Kenneth Kitts, the provost and vice chancellor for Academic Affairs. “She is uniquely well-positioned to help UNCP reach out to students, groups and businesses in our service area, and I know that she will make her presence felt across the region.”
Hunt is a 1990 UNCP graduate and earned a master’s of business administration degree from the university in 1997. She completed requirements for a doctorate in organization and management from Capella University in 2009. Hunt’s career has been marked by positions of increasing responsibility, and she is excited about her newest opportunity.
“There is no better job than teaching and working for the success of UNC Pembroke and its students,” she said. “I am thrilled to be taking on a new challenge in a unit with an important mission and dedicated staff.”
The scope of Hunt’s outreach responsibilities is broad. UNCP is the third-largest provider of online courses among the UNC universities. In addition, Distance Education operates four satellite campuses at Richmond, Sandhills and Cape Fear community colleges and on Fort Bragg.
“Building enrollment and providing good service to our students is always important on satellite campuses,” Hunt said. “With troops returning home and transitioning to new careers, there is a real opportunity to serve the military community in and around Fort Bragg.”
Hunt, who will continue to teach, is an assistant professor in the School of Business. She has taught courses in entrepreneurship, management, communications and economics.
