This year marks the 40th anniversary of legislation that brought all 16 of the state’s public universities into the University of North Carolina. For the first time ever, all five Presidents who have led the UNC system since that 1971 restructuring will come together next month to discuss the rewards and challenges of leading UNC . Former North Carolina Governor Jim Holshouser will lead this candid conversation with UNC Presidents emeriti William Friday, C.D. Spangler, Molly Broad, and Erskine Bowles and current President Tom Ross. An Evening with Five Presidents takes place on Wednesday, November 9 at 7 p.m. in Memorial Hall on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. The event is free and open to the public.
