Dr. Debra Saunders-White was formally installed as the 11th chancellor of North Carolina Central University on Friday, April 4, during ceremonies at McDougald-McLendon Gymnasium on campus. Chancellor Saunders-White, who was appointed to the post by the University of North Carolina Board of Governors in early 2013, came to NCCU from the U.S. Department of Education after working in higher education administration at Hampton University and the University of North Carolina Wilmington, as well as in corporate marketing for IBM.
"I see NCCU as the gateway to opportunity, a place where our students can catch hold of a vision and have the life of their dreams," the chancellor said in her inaugural speech. NCCU celebrated this historic occasion with a week of events. To see images of Installation Week, click here.
