Charleata Neal and Greg Weeks recently were selected to join the fifth cohort of the UNC System Executive Leadership Institute.

They are among the 33 faculty and staff members from across the system selected for this 10-month institute. Participants will learn more about the UNC System, its operations and leadership opportunities with the goal of preparing the next generation of top management for the system.

“The Executive Leadership Institute is an important investment in the future,” said University of North Carolina System President Peter Hans. “We are blessed to have a large pool of brilliant and dedicated colleagues right here within the system, and it makes sense to nurture that talent, putting time and resources into developing those leaders.”
