Dr. Kimberly van Noort named Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer

JASON TYSON
CHAPEL HILL – University of North Carolina System President Margaret Spellings today announced that Dr. Kimberly van Noort has been appointed as the senior vice president for academic affairs and chief academic officer for the UNC System. Dr. van Noort had been serving in an interim capacity in the position since May 31, and the announcement is effective immediately.

“Kim has done an exceptional job in an interim capacity in this role, and her knowledge and guidance are invaluable to the UNC System,” said President Spellings. “She will bring passionate enthusiasm and a deep knowledge of pedagogical innovation, academic planning, assessment, and curriculum development to this now permanent senior leadership position.”

A native of rural Nebraska, Dr. van Noort was the first member of her family to earn a college degree. After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in French, she earned her Ph.D from Boston University. An expert in French literature, her past academic research focused on the twentieth-century novel in France.

Dr. van Noort began her academic career at the University of Texas at Arlington in 1995, later becoming associate dean for academic affairs in its College of Liberal Arts in 2004. There, she was a strong advocate of study abroad, establishing the university’s first faculty-led program in France. In addition, she built new graduate student support mechanisms, developed faculty review and workload policies, and implemented a new advising model across the campus.

Promoted to associate vice provost for undergraduate studies and director of university college in 2014, Dr. van Noort developed extensive experience in strategic planning, accreditation oversight, and program assessment. In these roles, she spearheaded a redesign of UT-Arlington’s core curriculum, helped to create new degree programs, and worked to expand a general education degree-completion program. She also expanded student success programs, oversaw significant expansion of online services, and implemented new software to improve advising capabilities. Dr. van Noort had previously served as vice president for academic programs, faculty, and research for the UNC System since April 2016.

Theatre Program at N.C. A&T to Open Season with War, Sexual Assault Drama, “Ruined”

“Ruined” delves into the unthinkable reality – the heads and hearts of rape victims and their perpetrators
East Greensboro, N.C. (Oct. 10, 2018) – For its first production of the 2018-19 theater season, the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will present “Ruined” by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage. The play will run Oct. 18 – 21 and 25 – 28, in Paul Robeson Theatre.
The play examines the resilience of the human spirit in times of war. Set in a small mining town in the Democratic Republic of Congo, it follows Mama Nadi, a shrewd businesswoman who runs a brothel in a land torn apart by civil war. Mama Nadi keeps the peace between customers on both sides by serving everything from cold beers to warm beds. She protects and profits from the women whose bodies have become battlegrounds “ruined” by the brutality of rape and violence at the hands of government soldiers and rebel forces alike.  “Ruined” delves into the unthinkable reality – the heads and hearts of rape victims and their perpetrators – to create a full-immersion drama of shocking complexity and moral ambiguity. Inspired by interviews conducted in Africa, this searing play, directed by Dr. Vanita Vactor is an engrossing and uncommonly human story, revealing the loss and hopelessness of war, yet finding affirmation in life and hope. The Chicago Tribune hailed “Ruined” as “a remarkable theatrical accomplishment … sincere, passionate, and courageous!”

N.C. A&T Atmospheric Chemistry Researchers Receive $1 Million Grant   Jordan M. Howse

Research will be led by N.C. A&T professor Solomon Bililign, Ph.D., and co-principal investigator Marc Fiddler, Ph.D. The team will look at the optical properties of biomass smoke, as a function of relative humidity and the health implications of the smoke.

EAST GREENSBORO – (Oct. 4, 2018) It is estimated that Africa produces more than half of the world’s biomass burning smoke from biomass fuels and animal dung, where it’s used for cooking and heating homes. Despite Africa and other tropic regions’ high contribution to biomass burning emissions, relatively few studies have been done on the effects of specific emissions on global health and climate. North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University researchers will receive $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study the climate and health impacts of biomass smoke, combustion emissions and sub-Saharan Africa and Saharan dust mixed with biomass smoke.  N.C.
