5.1 CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER [CR]
The institution has a chief executive officer whose primary responsibility is to the institution.
The institution’s CEO has ultimate responsibility for priorities and initiatives that advance its board- approved mission, goals, and priorities. In order to minimize conflicts of interest, the expectation is that the CEO’s responsibilities are not shared among competing interests and the CEO does not hold any position other than that of institutional chief executive officer.

The Chancellor and Chief Executive Officer of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University was hired in June 2009. The core job functions for the Chancellor are to (a) provide visionary leadership enabling A&T to achieve its strategic goals, (b) develop innovative approaches for expansion of resources, and (c) ensure the fiscal and academic vitality of all colleges and schools. The Chancellor’s job functions are also outlined in the UNC Policy Manual, Section 502, (Chancellors of Constituent Institutions—Job Responsibilities) and the university’s Faculty Handbook, Chapter III—Administrative Organization.
The most recent position description and the Chancellor’s biography explain his roles and responsibilities and his qualifications. While Chancellor of N.C. A&T is his full-time and only job, the Chancellor of the university also serves on a variety of local, regional and national boards, including (a) Action Greensboro, (b) APLU Council of 1890 Presidents, (c) Greensboro Chamber, and (d) Thurgood Marshall College Fund. A complete list is provided. None of these activities create a conflict of interest for the Chancellor in his role as CEO of the university. These activities require active participation for several hours per year and are not a primary part of his professional commitments.
The Chancellor is not an officer of the University of North Carolina System, beyond his role as Chancellor of North Carolina A&T State University, one of its constituent institutions.
