Biographical Note

In 1991 Roy Carroll, vice president for planning at the general administration of the University of North Carolina, was asked to serve as interim chancellor of UNC Asheville following the resignation of David Brown. Dr. Carroll was at UNCA until the appointment of Samuel Schuman in the summer of 1992. Prior to joining UNC in 1979, Dr. Carroll taught history at Armstrong State College in Georgia, and Appalachian State University. After his interim chancellorship, Carroll returned to UNC General Administration where he worked until his retirement in 1999. In 2008, he received the University Award, the highest honor given by the UNC Board of Governors.

By its nature, his interim chancellorship was essentially a stop gap between Chancellors Brown and Schuman, but Dr. Carroll's time at UNCA did include the first symposium of the Asheville Institute on General Education.
