BradyLinda P. Brady, chancellor of the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG), has announced that she will step on July 31, 2015 and return to teaching. She was named the university’s tenth chancellor in August 2008.

“When I accepted the role as chancellor of this fine university in 2008, I had envisioned retiring after a seven-year tenure,” said President Brady. “As we embark upon our strategic visioning and planning process, I believe the time is right to begin identifying a successor as it will be important for the university’s next leader to participate in this important process and lead UNCG into the future.”

Thomas W. Ross, president of the University of North Carolina System, said, “Linda Brady has led UNCG with great integrity and courage and has earned our deep appreciation for her service. She has shepherded the institution through some very tough economic circumstances and has done so quite effectively, despite having to make difficult and sometimes unpopular decisions. She inherited a strong, highly respected institution and has worked diligently to position it for continued success in the years ahead.”

Prior to joining UNCG, Dr. Brady served as senior vice president and provost at the University of Oregon, dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at North Carolina State University, and chair of the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
