The UNC Board of Trustees officially appointed Andrew Feinstein as the university’s incoming president on Wednesday. Disseminating the news in an email to the student body, the board also included an open letter from Feinstein to the UNC community.
In the letter, Feinstein expressed how honored he is to be succeeding Kay Norton as UNC’s president, and described the transition as “an incredibly exciting opportunity” for both himself and his family. Stating how proud he is to be joining the Bear family, one of the primarily things Feinstein plans to do is listen.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone on campus, learning more about UNC and understanding what’s important to you,” the letter said. “UNC is working through some of the same challenges that universities around the country are facing, but the long-term outlook is very promising. We will address our challenges and celebrate our accomplishments together and continue to build on UNC’s strengths in providing a great education to our students.”
The president explained how himself and his family are excited to move into their new house in Greeley. Feinstein will visit the campus again on June 15 during the UNC Board of Trustees meeting.
