Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Dana Dunn and Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs Charles Maimone were introduced by Chancellor Linda P. Brady at a special welcome reception Oct. 8.
“They are excited about this university – as we are – and about our future,” Brady said.
“They view themselves as members of a team dedicated to continuing to provide a quality education experience to our students, to help them be successful, and to ensure that the university continues to move forward.”
With bouquets of daisies, the school flower, accenting the room, well wishers filled Virginia Dare Room.
Brady told everyone a bit of Dunn’s background. “She spent the last 27 years at the University of Texas – Arlington, where she began her career as a faculty member before accepting a series of important leadership roles which allowed her to play a critically important role in advancing that institution’s academic mission – including their planning efforts.”
The chancellor noted Dunn will help lead our own planning effort over the next 18 months.
“We could not be more honored to welcome her to UNCG and to Greensboro,” she said, to a round of applause.
Charlie Maimone joined UNCG from UNC Wilmington. He held a similar position there over the last six years, she noted, spotlighting the success UNCW has had in exploring innovative funding models and finding efficiencies.
She also praised the UNCG staff he leads – from areas such as finance and budget to facilities to emergency management to grounds. “Those who work with Charlie make this a better place for all of us to live and work.” “
We’re excited that Charlie is with us,” she said to a round of applause.
She presented small tokens of welcome to Dunn and Maimone.
“We are excited that both Dana and Charlie are going to be a significant part of the future of this university. We want to welcome them. We all hope to learn from them. We will support them in their efforts.
“And to all of you who do so much for this university every day, I want to wish you continued success.”
