Gilchrist, Chancellor of Elizabeth City State University. The Chancellor's wife, Jacqueline not pictured, held the Bible on which her husband swore his service to the university from which both graduated. The Chancellor's September 25 installation ceremony brought UNC President Erskine Bowles, state legislators, fellow educators, members of the University of North Carolina Board of Governors, University of North Carolina General Administrators, members of the ECSU Board of Trustees, alumni, students and the community to the Floyd L Robinson Auditorium. The UNC Board of Governors approved Dr. Gilchrist as Chancellor on March 15. The university is holding a series of events this week to celebrate the Chancellor's installation.
