The University of North Carolina at Charlotte said Stephen Ward will be its executive director of communications.
Ward, a Michigan native, is leaving the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, where he is executive director and assistant to the chancellor for university relations and communications.
He has a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and a master’s degree from The American University in Washington, D.C.
When asked if Ward is replacing another communications employee, UNCC spokesman Paul Nowell said, “No. Everyone’s still here.”
