Just a year after Western Carolina University’s spring enrollment surpassed 11,000 for the first time in the institution’s history, the tally for the current spring semester has hit another seasonal record, with a total of 11,434 students.
The Western Carolina University Board of Trustees approved a resolution in support of a rapid conclusion to a months-long impasse between the General Assembly and Gov. Roy Cooper that has tied up salary increases for faculty and staff, delayed funding for a replacement to WCU’s aging steam plant and forced university officials to consider slowing enrollment growth.
Ivy Gibson, associate general counsel at WCU, is chairing the search committee, which includes current and former student-athletes, Catamount Club representatives, athletics department staff and community members.
The campus committee leading the national search for Western Carolina University’s next vice chancellor for advancement is working with Aspen Leadership Group as the process moves forward and has scheduled a series of meetings designed to provide input to committee members and ALG.
