Endowing a Deanship


Longtime Carolina advocates and supporters Vicki ’92 and David Craver ’92 have made a transformative commitment to establish the Craver Family Dean in the College of Arts & Sciences. This forward-thinking gift will allow the College to remain nimble and responsive to immediate and strategic needs in the future and is a vote of confidence in how the College serves students at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Vicki Craver, a Campaign for Carolina co-chair and Carolina Women’s Campaign Cabinet member, and David Craver, a board member of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Foundation Investment Fund, Incsupported the College for more than 20 years, building relationships with Dean Terry Rhodes ’78, Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz and several other past deans.

“The Cravers have long demonstrated their thoughtful and generous commitment to Carolina. I know they have thought long and hard about where their new Campaign for Carolina gift would have the most impact,” Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz said. “As former dean of the College, I appreciate their strategic approach and how much they care about Carolina. I also know that transformative philanthropic commitments, like this one from the Cravers, truly provide the margin of excellence for which the College and the University are known.”
