CHAPEL HILL - UNC Board of Governors Chairman Louis Bissette announced the 2017-2018 UNC Board of Governors committee assignments. The committees play a critical role in developing policy recommendations and ensuring oversight of the university system.

“I greatly appreciate our board members’ willingness to devote the time and resources needed to serve on these important committees,” said Chairman Bissette. “The University’s students, faculty, and staff—as well as the citizens of North Carolina—will ultimately benefit from the talents and leadership of each of our committee members.”

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

“I look forward to working with this new slate of board members to continue our efforts to implement the Strategic Plan and to meet our shared goals of improving student access and success and ensuring college affordability for all North Carolinians,” said UNC System President Margaret Spellings. “I would like to thank Chairman Bissette for his leadership in creating committees that recognize the strengths and expertise of our board.”
