There are a lot of differences between UNC Chancellor-elect Carol Folt and outgoing Chancellor Holden Thorp.
Thorp is Tar Heel born and bred. He spent almost his entire career at UNC. Folt was educated on the west coast and spent her whole career at Dartmouth College, where she’s currently Interim President.
Thorp has only worked at public universities while Folt has stuck to private schools.
And of course, Thorp is a man and Folt is a woman–UNC’s first female chancellor.
She was named Chancellor yesterday.
