It doesn't appear UNC Chapel Hill Chancellor Holden Thorp has designs on any other jobs.
Thorp is profiled today in an article today in the Chronicle of Higher Education examining several new, youngish university leaders. Thorp is spotlighted, as is Michael Rao, who at age 42 is about to become the head of a university for a fourth time when he becomes Virginia Commonwealth's president.
The story is here, though you may need a password. In it, Thorp says his plan isn't to get a certain number of things done within a finite period of time. Rather, he just wants to do things right.
Thorp's lineage suggests he'll be here a while. He's a native son, a Fayetteville native and UNC-CH graduate who rose through the faculty and administrative ranks before snaring the top job last year.
His ascension marked a departure for UNC-CH, which had previously hired chancellors with previous CEO experience - James Moeser as Nebraska and Michael Hooker at Massachusetts.
And Thorp appears pretty happy with his job, even dealing as he is with a significant budget cut battle right now.
"There aren't many places that I could move up to," he told the Chronicle of Higher Ed. "Even if I wasn't a lifer."
