Philip L. Dubois

Philip L. Dubois (1997-2005)

A native of Oakland, California, Philip L. Dubois attended the University of California, Davis, where he graduated in 1972 with highest honors with an undergraduate degree in political science, including election to Phi Beta Kappa. He then earned master's (1974) and doctoral (1978) degrees in the field from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Dubois began his academic career in 1976 at the University of California, Davis. Over the next 15 years, he rose through the faculty and administrative ranks to full professor and held various administrative posts, including associate vice chancellor for academic affairs.

In 1991, Dubois was recruited to UNC Charlotte, where he spent the next six and a half years as provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. Under his leadership, UNC Charlotte opened its first classroom facility in Center City Charlotte and launched its first doctoral programs.

In 1997, Dubois was named president of the University of Wyoming. In that role, he led the development and implementation of comprehensive academic, support services, and capital construction plans for Wyoming's only university. Private contributions to the institution more than quadrupled during his tenure. He was honored in 2004 by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) with its District VI Chief Executive Leadership Award.

On March 18, 2005, Dubois was named UNC Charlotte's fourth chancellor and assumed that role on July 15.
