Kevin M. Guskiewicz
Kevin M. Guskiewicz, a neuroscientist, academic leader and a world-renowned researcher, is the interim chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
UNC System Interim President William L. Roper appointed Guskiewicz in February 2019. In announcing Guskiewicz, Roper said he was looking for someone who could chart a course for Carolina, who was ready to serve as an active leader and who has gained the trust and support of the community.
“It is an honor to be asked to lead the nation’s first public university into the next chapter of its storied history,” Guskiewicz said. “When I became dean, I pledged to be ‘strategic, bold and student focused,’ and those imperatives will continue to guide me in this role. I am excited and energized by the possibility and promise of the things the Carolina community can accomplish together.”
