JOY and Provost Blouin

November 8, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

On Thursday, November 8,  the JOY Group (Just Older Youth) at University UMC welcomes UNC-Chapel Hill Provost Robert Blouin.  The event will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Chapel. Provost Blouin will speak about plans and priorities for UNC-Chapel Hill and entertain questions after his talk.  Following the presentation attendees will reassemble in the Fellowship Hall around 12:00 p.m. for a catered lunch ($14) by Mediterranean Deli.

Robert A. “Bob” Blouin is the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Provost serves as the Chief Operating Officer of the university and works in unison with Chancellor Carol Folt to lead critically important university-wide initiatives. The Provost also has oversight responsibilities for budget and planning. Together with the chancellor, Provost Blouin has a central leadership role in implementing UNC-CH’s first-ever strategic framework, an initiative that will guide university growth over the next decade and beyond.
