Fayetteville State chancellor resigns
Fayetteville State University Chancellor T. J. Bryan announced today that she will resign, effective July 23.
Bryan, who arrived at Fayetteville State in July 2003, said in a statement that she had mixed feelings.
“I love Fayetteville State University, and I am honored to have been able to serve as its Chancellor for four years. We have the best students in the world; they are bright, talented, and respectful. We have dedicated faculty and staff who give 100 percent to the university,” she said.
“I am stepping down as Chancellor so that the university may pursue its core mission of educating students.”
Mrs. Bryan was reportedly asked to resign after meeting with UNC President Erskine Bowles and Fayetteville State Board Chair Friday morning at his office in Chapel Hill, sources said.
FSU has been in the news recently for controversy with its nursing program and a state audit of its finances.
Dr. Lloyd D. Hackley, a former chancellor of FSU and N.C. A&T, is being discussed as a possible interim chancellor, the sources said.
