On the advice of Dean James they will focus on the freedom of creativity and progress encouraged among deans at UNC, stating that the type of freedom allowed here is very different from other schools.

He also emphasized that the role of the University in education policymaking for the state would be attractive for someone looking to make a difference. He advised them to find someone who is seeking to influence change, rather than furthering personal accomplishment.
