Vic Hackley, who led N.C. A&T State University for the past year, was named today as interim chancellor at Fayetteville State University.
His appointment, effective July 23, was announced by UNC President Erskine Bowles, reports Jane Stancill.
Hackley, a former FSU chancellor, UNC system vice president and N.C. Community College System president, will serve until a permanent chancellor is chosen. He succeeds T.J. Bryan, who announced this week that she would resign amid a number of problems at the campus.
Hackley has gained a reputation as a turnaround artist. He is credited with uncovering serious financial abuse and mismanagement at N.C. A&T and helping clean up the problems. A team of UNC officials and auditors was sent to the campus at Hackley's request.
