"We are optimistic, leaning in and expecting our students faculty and staff to return to classrooms, labs and libraries this fall," Roper told the UNC Board of Governors.
The General Assembly also appropriated another $50 million or so direct to certain campus programs during its recent coronavirus session, primarily for COVID-19 research and to help teaching hospitals attached to UNC system campuses. The legislature approved another $20 million that will go to private universities in the state.
The Board of Governors also named a new long-term chancellor Wednesday for the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston Salem, elevating interim chancellor Brian Cole. His salary will be $280,000 a year.
