A top University of North Carolina official will become the first female and first black chancellor at the University of Kansas.

The Kansas Board of Regents on Friday announced the appointment of Bernadette Gray-Little.

She is currently executive vice chancellor and provost at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and she’s a former dean of its College of Arts and Sciences.

She will replace Robert Hemenway, who has been chancellor at the University of Kansas since 1995. Hemenway announced in December that he was retiring but would return to the classroom next year as a professor.
