Donald Reaves named Chancellor of Winston-Salem State University

Feb. 9, 2007

Donald J. Reaves, Vice President for Administration and Chief Financial Officer at the University of Chicago since 2002, has been elected Chancellor of Winston-Salem State University by the Board of Governors of the 16-campus University of North Carolina. Reaves, 60, will assume his new duties in August.

President Zimmer said that he was grateful for Reaves' help in dealing with a range of financial and administrative issues. "I know I speak for many in thanking Donald for his service to the University of Chicago and also congratulating him on this important new leadership opportunity," Zimmer said.

Reaves has had primary oversight of most of the University's fiscal and administrative operations, including budgeting, human resources, capital planning and facilities services, construction, risk management, and fiscal and strategic planning. He also supports five committees of the University's Board of Trustees.

A native of Cleveland, Reaves came to the University of Chicago in 2002 from Brown University in Providence, R.I., where he served for 14 years, nine as Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration and Chief Financial Officer.
