Dr. Jeff Frederick from the Department of History has been appointed to the position, formerly held by Mark Canada, who took a provost job in Indiana. Frederick joined the UNCP faculty in 2003. Chancellor Cummings made the announcement at the April Board of Trustees meeting. Frederick will take over from interim dean Dr. Meredith Storms on June 1. Frederick has chaired the history department for a year, and recently won a UNCP teaching award.
