From Staff Reports 

UNC Asheville Chancellor Nancy J. Cable was recently appointed to the Board of Directors of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, the leading national association dedicated to advancing the vitality and excellence of higher education in service to democracy. 

Founded in 1915, AAC&U now comprises 1,400 member institutions—including accredited public and private colleges, community colleges, research universities, and comprehensive universities of every type and size.

“I am deeply honored to serve on the board of AAC&U, together with my nationally respected higher education colleagues, as we seek to advance higher education, raise awareness of the value of liberal education for work, life, global citizenship, and democracy, and aim to catalyze reform in higher education to emphasize discovery and innovation as fundamental aspects of a liberal arts and science education,” Cable said.

“Cable is a nationally recognized leader in higher education, educational access, financial aid and affordability, and liberal arts and sciences curricula,” a UNCA press release stated.

She joined UNCA in August 2018 as its eighth chancellor. 

With more than four decades of broad and diverse expertise in higher education, Cable has held leadership positions at both private and public institutions, including Denison University, Guilford College, Davidson College, University of Virginia, and Bates College. 

Prior to becoming UNCA’s chancellor, Cable served as president of the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations.

“Chancellor Cable is a visionary leader and extraordinary champion of liberal education and equity. We are thrilled to welcome her to AAC&U’s board and look forward to learning from her insights,” said AAC&U President Lynn Pasquerella.
