Leaders throughout the system announce resolutions for 2017
During the holiday season, it’s a time-honored tradition to prepare resolutions for the new year. Here in the UNC system, we’re no different. We asked campus leaders from across the system to give us their goals and wishes for 2017 in the form of a Tweet, and here’s what they said.
