North Carolina Central University has appointed Dr. Monica Terrell Leach as senior associate vice chancellor for the division of enrollment management and academic affairs. She has served as associate vice chancellor of the division for almost two years. In her new role, Leach will continue to lead the division, while also serving as the senior officer charged with executing key academic strategic initiatives and representing the Office of the Provost when assigned. Leach joined NCCU in 2014 as the first leader in the division of enrollment management after it was structurally realigned within the Department of Academic Affairs.
Before arriving at NCCU, Leach served at N.C. State University for almost twenty years in a variety of leadership roles, including assistant dean for academic fffairs, tenured associate professor and assistant vice provost for enrollment management.
“Dr. Leach has consistently demonstrated a keen ability to manage university resources efficiently to achieve successful student outcomes,” said Dr. Johnson O. Akinleye, NCCU’s provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs.
Leach is a 2016 participant of the Harvard Graduate School of Education Women in Education Leadership program. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Louisiana State University and master’s and doctoral degrees in education from N.C. State.
