Print this article Email this Article From Staff Reports About ACEAmerican Council on Education Web site. James C. Renick will be leaving his position as N.C. A&T's chancellor to be senior vice president for programs and research at the American Council on Education, the council announced today. He will serve at his new job June 1.
Renick has served as chancellor and professor of political science at A&T since July 1999.
At his new job, Renick will succeed Michael Baer, who served as the education council's senior vice president for programs and analysis for seven years.
The council serves as a coordinating body for all of the nation's higher education institutions, representing more than 1,600 college and university presidents. It also serves more than 200 related associations nationwide.
A news conference at N.C. A&T was scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday.
Let me first thank each of you for your hard work, commitment and loyalty to North Carolina A&T State University. Together, we have made major strides over the past seven years to make N.C. A&T a premier university.
I am sending you this special email today to announce a major N.C. A&T senior leadership transition.
Later today, I will announce that I have accepted the position as senior vice president for programs and research at the American Council on Education (ACE) in Washington, D.C., effective June 1. I will also announce that Norfolk State University has tapped Provost Meyers to be the next president.
Being chancellor at N.C. A&T continues to be the highlight of my professional life. I will continue to provide the necessary leadership during the next several months.
I'll go further than depressed... I'm PISSED... Being chancellor is not akin to being football coach. You dont just sign on for a few years and bounce! How can he leave us now?? There's still so much to be done. We better get someone strong in here! And we BETTER NOT get the next harvey from hampton or some of his cronies!
