Hackley named interim chancellor at Fayetteville State
Vic Hackley, who led N.C. A&T State University for the past year, was named Thursday as interim chancellor at Fayetteville State University. His appointment, effective July 23, was announced by UNC President Erskine Bowles.
Hackley, a former FSU chancellor, UNC system vice president and N.C. Community College System president, will serve until a permanent chancellor is chosen.
He succeeds T.J. Bryan, who announced this week that she would resign amid a number of problems at the campus.
Hackley is credited with uncovering serious financial abuse and mismanagement at N.C. A&T State and helping clean up the problems. A team of UNC officials and auditors was sent to the campus at Hackley's request.
A retired U.S. Air Force officer with a doctorate in international relations from UNC-Chapel Hill, Hackley is the founder of a firm that focused on ethics, leadership and community and character development.
In a statement Thursday afternoon, Bowles said Hackley "tackles every challenge handed to him with full commitment, great passion and absolute integrity."
