CHAPEL HILL – Dr. Carol Folt’s tenure as UNC Chancellor is just more than 24 hours old, and the former Ivy-League-College leader is heading to Raleigh to meet with state leaders.

Chancellor Folt reportedly spent the first day in office assembling her cabinet and meeting with student and staff leaders. Tuesday, Chancellor Folt meets with Governor Pat McCrory and other legislative leaders after which she returns to campus to continue meeting with faculty and staff at UNC.

UNC’s new chancellor will be in attendance Thursday for the Town’s July 4th celebration in Kenan Stadium.
