2 ORGANIZATION AND ADMINISTRATION
2-1 HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA
In North Carolina, all the public educational institutions that grant baccalaureate degrees are part of the University of North Carolina. The University of North Carolina at Pembroke is one of 16 constituent institutions of the multi-campus state university.
The University of North Carolina, chartered by the N.C. General Assembly in 1789, was the first public university in the United States to open its doors and the only one to graduate students in the eighteenth century. The first class was admitted in Chapel Hill in 1795. For the next 136 years, the only campus of the University of North Carolina was at Chapel Hill.
In 1877, the N.C. General Assembly began sponsoring additional institutions of higher education, diverse in origin and purpose. Five were historically Black institutions, and another was founded to educate American Indians. Several were created to prepare teachers for the public schools. Others had a technological emphasis. One is a training school for performing artists.
In 1931, the N.C. General Assembly redefined the University of North Carolina to include three state-supported institutions: the campus at Chapel Hill (now the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), North Carolina State College (now North Carolina State University at Raleigh), and Woman's College (now the University of North Carolina at Greensboro). The new multi-campus University operated with one board of trustees and one president. By 1969, three additional campuses had joined the University through legislative action: the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
In 1971, the General Assembly passed legislation bringing into the University of North Carolina the state's ten remaining public senior institutions, each of which had until then been legally separate: Appalachian State University, East Carolina University, Elizabeth City State University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, North Carolina Central University, the North Carolina School of the Arts, Pembroke State University (now The University of North Carolina at Pembroke), Western Carolina University, and Winston-Salem State University. This action created the current 16-campus University. (In 1985, the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, a residential high school for gifted students, was declared an affiliated school of the University.) In 1996, Pembroke State University was redesignated The University of North Carolina at Pembroke by the General Assembly.
The UNC Board of Governors is the policy-making body legally charged with "the general determinations, control, supervision, management, and governance of all affairs ofthe constituent institutions." It elects the president, who administers the University. The 32 voting members of the Board of Governors are elected by the General Assembly for four-year terms. Former board chairmen and board members who are former governors of North Carolina may continue to serve for limited periods as non-voting members emeriti. The president of the UNC Association of Student Governments, or the student's designee, is also a non-voting member.
Each of the 16 constituent institutions is headed by a chancellor, who is chosen by the Board of Governors on the president's nomination and is responsible to the president. Each institution has a board of trustees, consisting of eight members elected by the Board of Governors, four appointed by the governor, and the president of the student body, who serves ex officio. (The NC School of the Arts has two additional ex officio members.) Each board of trustees holds extensive powers over academic and other operations of its institution on delegation from the Board of Governors.
2-2 GENERAL ORGANIZATION
The General Statutes of North Carolina as enacted by the 1971 session of the North Carolina General Assembly established the Board of Governors of The University of North Carolina as the single state-level governing authority under which the following state-supported institutions of higher education are organized for administration. These statutes also designate them as constituent institutions of The University of North Carolina:
Appalachian State University
East Carolina University
Elizabeth City State University
Fayetteville State University
N. C. Agricultural and Technical State University
North Carolina Central University
North Carolina School of the Arts

University of North Carolina at Pembroke
University of North Carolina at Asheville
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
University of North Carolina at Charlotte
University of North Carolina at Greensboro
University of North Carolina at Wilmington
Western Carolina University
Winston-Salem State University
The Board of Governors of The University of North Carolina is responsible for the general determination, control, supervision, management, and governance of all affairs of the constituent institutions. The President of The University of North Carolina is the chief administrative and executive officer and is responsible for the administration of The University. The President has established the General Administration to assist with this responsibility. The chief administrative officer for each constituent institution is the Chancellor, and a Board of Trustees has been established for each institution. The Chancellor determines the organization and administration for his campus.
The State Board of Education is responsible for public school education in North Carolina. The State Department of Public Instruction is responsible to the State Board for the certification/licensure of public school educators. The State Department of Public Instruction is also responsible for the development of standards and guidelines for the use of institutions of higher education in preparing teacher education programs and for their approval by the State Board of Education and the Board of Governors of The University of North Carolina.
