Thomas W. Ross, president of Davidson College and a former chair of the UNCG Board of Trustees, was unanimously elected president of the 17-campus University of North Carolina by the UNC Board of Governors on Aug. 26. He will take office Jan. 1, succeeding Erskine Bowles, who announced in February that he would retire this December after five years in the post. Chancellor Linda P. Brady said, “Tom Ross will be an outstanding leader for the University of North Carolina. He understands higher education and the challenges we face, and recognizes the historic support provided by the citizens of North Carolina for our University. I have enjoyed serving with him on the Southern Conference Council of Presidents.” Before his tenure at Davidson, Ross was chairman of the UNCG Board of Trustees from 2005 to 2007.
