Scope and Content Note

The records of James Oblinger reflect much of the time of his tenure as Chancellor at North Carolina State University (2004-2009), and include correspondence, audits, speech transcripts, reports, minutes, and other administrative papers. Topics include capital improvements, the expansion of Centennial Campus including the addition of Engineering Complex III, athletics, and the beginning of the redevelopment of Hillsborough Street. Topics also include the continuation of speaker series such as the Emerging Issues Forum and the Millenium Seminars Series, attracting speakers such as former Senator Bill Bradley, Senator Chris Dodd, and former President Bill Clinton. The records include numerous transcripts of speeches given by Chancellor Oblinger at football games and other events. Several of these speeches mention the passing of women’s basketball coach Kay Yow in 2009. Under Oblinger’s leadership, graduate student enrollment and distance education enrollment increased, with both numbers reaching all-time highs, and a new Office of Undergraduate Research was also created. The university also continued to expand in the fields of biotechnology, nanotechnology, proteomics, food safety, and biomedical research.

The records of the Office of the Chancellor during James Oblinger’s administration range in date from 2004-2009.

Historical Note

The Chancellor is the chief administrative and executive officer, leader and spokesperson of North Carolina State University. The Chancellor, who has complete executive authority for the university, subject to the direction of the president and the board of trustees, defines the scope and authority of faculties, councils, committees, and officers of North Carolina State University, is a member of all faculties and other academic bodies of the university, and has the right to preside over the deliberations of the legislative bodies of the faculties of the institution. The Office of the Chancellor retains authority in faculty and EPA personnel, student matters, contracts, leases, and other agreements, and the acquisition and disposition of property.

The title of the head of North Carolina State University has changed over time. First the university was led by a president (1889-1934), then a vice president of the Consolidated University (1934), then a dean of Administration (1934-1945), and finally a chancellor (1945-present).

James L. Oblinger was born in Ashland, Ohio. He received a bachelor’s degree in bacteriology at DePauw University in 1967, and both an M.S. and Ph.D. in food technology at Iowa State University in 1970 and 1972, respectively. He was an Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor of Food Science and Human Nutrition at the University of Florida from 1972 to 1984. At the University of Missouri-Columbia, he acted as associate dean and director of resident instruction of the College of Agriculture from 1984-1986. At NC State, Oblinger served as Associate Dean and Dean of Academic Affairs for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (1986-1997), as Dean and Executive Director for Agricultural Programs of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (1997-2003), and as Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor before being named the 13th Chancellor of North Carolina State University in 2005.

Chancellor Oblinger resigned in June of 2009 amid controversy related to the hiring of former First Lady of North Carolina, Mary Easley.
