Kevin M. Guskiewicz, a neuroscientist, academic leader and concussion researcher, is the 12th chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Prior to his appointment as chancellor, Guskiewicz served as the interim chancellor from February 2019 until December 2019. In that role, he held over 25 listening and learning sessions with constituents across campus. He was instrumental in shaping Carolina’s new strategic plan, Carolina Next: Innovations for Public Good that outlines a roadmap for the University’s priorities moving forward. He relaunched the Tar Heel Bus Tour with 90 faculty and campus leaders, demonstrating Carolina’s commitment to the state.
Robert A. “Bob” Blouin is Carolina’s executive vice chancellor and provost. The provost serves as the chief operating officer of the University and works in unison with the chancellor to lead critically important pan-university initiatives. The provost also has oversight responsibilities for budget and planning.
Blouin plays a central leadership role in implementing Carolina’s first-ever strategic framework, an initiative that will guide University growth over the next decade. He believes a key mission of the provost is to ensure Carolina attracts, develops and retains leading faculty members focused on preparing students for success in a rapidly changing global economy.
