CHAPEL HILL — Another vice chancellor is leaving UNC-Chapel Hill as turnover continues in the top ranks at the university.
Brenda Malone, vice chancellor for human resources and interim director of the Equal Opportunity/ADA Office, is leaving the university at the end of the year. She will become human resources vice president at Georgetown University.
Malone has been at UNC-CH since 2007 and was promoted to the vice chancellor position by the previous chancellor, Holden Thorp. She said her new job would put her closer to family, according to the university’s announcement of her departure.
Chancellor Carol Folt said Malone’s work has left the university well positioned for the future. Folt said she will soon appoint an interim leader in human resources and the Equal Opportunity/ADA office.
Malone is the latest vice chancellor to leave. In October, Karol Kain Gray, who was vice chancellor of finance and administration since 2011, started a new job at a New York technology company. Folt credited Gray with successfully managing the campus’ budget during an era of state cuts.
The turnover means that Folt will make her mark on the university’s leadership team.
About half of the university’s vice chancellors have been hired by Folt, who arrived in Chapel Hill in July. The new administrators include David Routh as vice chancellor for development and Joel Curran, who will be the university’s first vice chancellor for communications and public affairs. Jim Dean, the former business school dean, became provost under Folt.
