“Let me say that it has been my honor and privilege to serve as your Chancellor. So, today, I bring a bittersweet message. It is now time for Lisa and me to move on to our next adventure! This was not an easy decision for us. UNC Charlotte is a special place, with wonderful faculty and staff colleagues, and talented students. And the same can be said of this wonderful city, which we have watched grow and develop in size and stature. But the time is right for us to make this transition,” Dubois said in an email to families.

Dubois said announcing his retirement now will give school leaders plenty of time to conduct a national search for his replacement.

Dubois came to UNCC in 1991 and spent more than five years as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. He became the school’s fourth chancellor in July 2005.
