William Randolph (Randy) Woodson is the fourteenth chancellor of North Carolina State University. He received his BS, MS, and PhD degrees in horticulture from the University of Arkansas and Cornell University, respectively. Woodson began his academic career at Louisiana State University in 1983, and joined the Purdue faculty in 1985 as a professor in the Department of Horticulture. Woodson served as head of the Department of Horticulture until moving on to administrative positions at Purdue, first as the associate dean of agriculture and director of the Office of Agricultural Research Programs from 1998 to 2004, and then as the as the Glenn W. Sample Dean of Agriculture. In May 2008, Woodson became the executive vice president for academic affairs and provost, his final position at Purdue before being named to the Chancellorship at NC State on 8 January, 2010.
The Chancellor is the chief administrative and executive officer, leader and spokesperson of North Carolina State University. The Chancellor, who has complete executive authority for the university, subject to the direction of the president and the board of trustees, defines the scope and authority of faculties, councils, committees, and officers of North Carolina State University, is a member of all faculties and other academic bodies of the university, and has the right to preside over the deliberations of the legislative bodies of the faculties of the institution. The Office of the Chancellor retains authority in faculty and EPA personnel, student matters, contracts, leases, and other agreements, and the acquisition and disposition of property.
The title of the head of North Carolina State University has changed over time. First the university was led by a president (1889-1934), then a vice president of the Consolidated University (1934), then a dean of Administration (1934-1945), and finally a chancellor (1945-present).
