The World Affairs Council of Charlotte is planning to honor Phil Dubois, chancellor of UNC Charlotte, Wednesday night as the 2016 World Citizen for his role in enhancing the city’s global standing.
Dubois joined UNC Charlotte in 1991 as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. He left in 1997 to become president of the University of Wyoming before returning to UNC Charlotte in 2005 as chancellor.
“The university has broadened its international footprint under the 11 years of Phil’s guidance,” the World Affairs Council said in a news release. “New and ongoing partnerships and research activities abroad have thrived, among them the decades-long relationship with Kingston University of London.”
He also launched the Levine Scholars program in 2010, whose participants have at least one international experience.
The nonprofit World Affairs Council serves as a regional center for education and discussion of world affairs. Staff Reports
