CHAPEL HILL - UNC Board of Governors Chair-Elect Harry Smith has announced assignments for the 2018-2019 UNC Board of Governors standing and special committees. These committees play a critical role in developing policy recommendations and ensuring oversight of the university system. The assignments will go into effect on July 1, 2018.

“This Board is about good governance for the UNC System and greater accountability for the taxpayers of North Carolina,” said Chair-Elect Smith. “We want to make informed decisions and identify solutions for this state—and these committee appointments are a big part of the strategy. I’m also looking forward to the newly created committees tackling big issues like serving our student veterans and our historically minority-serving institutions.”

The UNC Board of Governors is responsible for the planning, development, and overall governance of the state’s public university system. Its 28 voting members are elected by the NC General Assembly for four-year terms.

“This new slate of committee members will further our efforts to implement the Board’s Strategic Plan and meet our shared goals of improving student access and success and ensuring college affordability for all citizens of North Carolina,” said UNC System President Margaret Spellings. “We want to build a college-going culture in this state—and thanks to Chair-Elect Smith’s leadership—we have the right Board members in the right places to make this a reality.”
