(Chapel Hill, N.C.— May 31, 2017) – The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Board of Trustees has appointed a select group of alumni and friends to serve on the UNC Board of Visitors, one of the most active volunteer organizations at Carolina. They will begin their four-year terms on July 1, 2017.
The 56 new members are part of an approximately 175-member board that actively assists the Board of Trustees and Chancellor in a range of activities focused on advancing UNC-Chapel Hill, including career services, marketing, honor student recruitment, government relations and fundraising. Members also serve as ambassadors, informing their communities about issues important to Carolina, and, in turn, sharing feedback from their communities with the University’s administration.
The Board of Visitors selection process begins in January and continues through May. Each year, as fourth year members complete their terms, the Board of Trustees elects a class of new members.

A. Douglas Rothwell, of Ann Arbor, Michigan will chair the Board of Visitors and Sallie Glover, of Raleigh, will serve as vice chair.
