Biographical/historical note

The Chancellor is the chief administrative and executive officer, leader and spokesperson of North Carolina State University and reports to the President of the University of North Carolina General Administration and the Board of Governors, whose members are appointed by the North Carolina legislature. The University is governed by a 13-member North Carolina State University Board of Trustees. 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 university was established as North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts (A & M College) in 1887. The name was changed in 1917 to North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (State College). State College became North Carolina State University in 1965.

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).
