Holden Thorp named UNC chancellor

Holden Thorp, a chemist and current dean of UNC-Chapel Hill's College of Arts & Sciences, will be the university's next chancellor. The UNC system's Board of Governors approved Thorp's hiring this afternoon. He succeeds James Moeser, chancellor since 2000, who retires later this year. Addressing the Board of Governors after the vote, Thorp said he wanted the university to do more research and to be a place where people are not afraid to think creatively.
