Chancellor Search

Welcome to the website to keep the campus community and public informed about the search for the Elizabeth City State University's 10th Chancellor.

The University's Board of Trustees has appointed a search committee to conduct a national search for the next Chancellor.

The Chancellor is the administrative and executive head of the University and exercises complete executive authority over the University, subject to the direction of the President of the University of North Carolina. The Chancellor is responsible for carrying out the policies of the Board of Governors and the Board of Trustees.

Abdul Rasheed, chair of the University's Board of Trustees, chairs a 21-member search committee. Click here to read a message from Chair Rasheed. Search committee members represent the Board of Trustees, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community.
