Charlotte Nuñez-Wolff has joined the Nicholas School as its first senior associate dean for finance and administration. Nuñez-Wolff comes to the Nicholas School from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Gillings School of Global Public Health, where she had been associate dean for business and administration and treasurer of the UNC Public Health Foundation since 2008. Prior to that post, she held a variety of top administrative positions at Duke, including serving six years as associate dean for resource planning at the Duke School of Medicine, and four years as director of general administration and finance at the School of Divinity. “Charlotte brings an extraordinary range of skills and experience to this new position, and a wonderful energy for the job and the mission of our school,” says Dean Alan R. Townsend. “We are fortunate to have her join our ranks.” As senior associate dean for finance and administration, Nuñez-Wolff oversees the Nicholas School’s senior staff leadership team and the operating budget and serves as primary advisor to the dean on administrative and business matters, including finance, human resources, facilities management, and instructional and information technology. In addition she works closely with Dean Urban, senior associate dean for academic initiatives. Dean Townsend created the new senior administrative position in 2014 and appointed Nuñez-Wolff to the post following a national search. Nuñez-Wolff earned an EdD in higher education management from the University of Pennsylvania in 2007, an MA in liberal studies from Duke in 1999, and a BA from UNC-Chapel Hill in international studies in 1990.
