North Carolina A&T Chancellor Named Senior Vice President for Programs and Research at ACE
Dr. James C. Renick, chancellor of North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, has been named senior vice president for programs and research effective June 1. Prior to North Carolina A&T, Renick served as chancellor and professor at the University of Michigan-Dearborn.
As senior vice president for programs and research (formerly programs and analysis), Renick will be responsible for working with senior program staff to develop an integrated, visionary and focused program agenda for ACE that reflects the Council’s strategic priorities as it works to respond to the changing demands on campus leaders.
Recognized for his success in a number of areas including access and opportunity, Renick will provide strategic leadership in the areas of Diversity and Access; Leadership and Institutional Effectiveness; International Initiatives; and Lifelong Learning.
“I am extremely pleased to have a professional of Jim’s caliber join the Council in this important position,” said ACE President David Ward. “The issues addressed by our Division of Programs and Research-access, diversity, leadership, lifelong learning and international education-have always been central to ACE’s mission. Jim’s success in these areas is well demonstrated over the course of his career, and I expect we will only enhance our leadership position, advocacy, and the valuable programs we offer to our member institutions.”
Renick succeeds Michael Baer, who served as ACE’s senior vice president for programs and analysis for seven years.
He earned a bachelor’s degree from Central State University in Ohio, where he was inducted into the Donald K. Anthony Achievement Hall of Fame in 1993. He earned an MSW degree from Kansas University, and a Ph.D. in public administration from Florida State University. Renick is also a former ACE Fellow.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of the ACE leadership team and furthering the important mission of the Council,” Renick said.
Renick serves on numerous boards including the National Council for Science and the Environment and the Presidential Board of Advisors on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
He has consulted nationally and internationally on leadership and higher education. In 1985, Renick established the Executive Fellows program at the University of South Florida, serving as the founding educational chair and director of the public administration program. Most recently, he is a founding member of the Millennium Leadership Institute of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities — a program designed to increase the number of university presidents/chancellors of color.
His research has been published in numerous professional journals including the Social Science Quarterly, Personnel Journal, State Government, Metropolitan Universities, and the Public Personnel Management Journal. He has received several awards including the American Association for Higher Education Black Caucus’ Exemplary Award for Public Service, the University of Michigan President’s Medallion and Faculty of the Year.
