The next chair of the faculty at UNC Chapel Hill will be unveiled today.
Two longtime faculty members are in the running, and electronic voting was held April 13 to 20. The results will be made public today at a Faculty Council meeting that starts at 3 p.m. at the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History.
The candidates are Arne Kalleberg, from sociology, and McKay Coble, chair of the department of dramatic art.
Here's some background on each.
The winner will succeed Joe Templeton, a chemist whose three-year appointment soon comes to an end.
