Dear NCCU Students, Faculty, Staff and Alumni:

The NCCU Board of Trustees writes to reaffirm our support and confidence in North Carolina Central University’s Chancellor, Dr. Johnson O. Akinleye. Rumors regarding Chancellor Akinleye’s departure from NCCU are false and untrue. Chancellor Akinleye is a stellar leader whose dedication to all NCCU constituents has resulted in the university’s position and profile as a top-ranked regional and national institution.

As a Board, we are advocates and advisors for NCCU. Our focus is always on decisions that are best for the students, employees, alumni and partners of the institution. We are firm, unwavering and united in our commitment to Chancellor Akinleye and his leadership of NCCU, today and throughout his tenure in the years to come.
