The University of North Carolina announced the new interim chancellor for the School of Arts.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports Brian Cole will take over as interim chancellor, replacing Lindsay Bierman. President of the UNC System Bill Roper made the announcement Wednesday.
Bierman was chancellor for five years and was appointed to be the new chief executive officer of UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina.
Cole has been the current dean of the School of Music since 2016, where he oversees operations at the schools and programs at the graduate, undergrad, and high school level. He has also been executive director of two pre-professional graduate institutes at the school — the A.J. Fletcher Opera Institute and the Chrysalis Chamber Music Institute.
Cole will take over August 1.
