Stepping In

NWA Daily

Bill Kincaid, the University of Arkansas's associate general counsel, has been named acting chancellor. The role is meant to be occupied for "a few weeks" while the University finds a long term fit for the position.

  • How did we get here? After over 5 years in the position, former Chancellor Steinmetz sent a letter last Thursday to campus signifying his immediate resignation effective June 18.
  • In the meantime: Mr. Kincaid has worked with the University of Arkansas for more than twenty years and will be stepping in to take care of the university's operations and relations while the U of A searches for a candidate to fill the role more permanently.
