Dr. James R. Leutze assumed the chancellorship of The University of North Carolina at Wilmington in July, 1990.  A native of Charleston, S.C., Dr. Leutze received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland, a master’s degree from the University of Miami and a doctoral degree from Duke University. He served as a captain in the U.S. Air Force then began a career as a professor at Chapel Hill. Dr. Leutze is also an award-winning writer, receiving national awards for two of his four books on international affairs and national security. Prior to coming to UNCW he served as president of Hampden Sydney College in Virginia. Through a partnership with N. C. Public TV, Leutze created Globe Watch, an international series airing for 14 years.  After coming to UNCW he used the program to bring attention to environmental and water quality issues, and as educational material for public school teachers. After serving as chancellor for 13 years, he is among the longest serving chancellors in the UNC system and is one of only two who has also served in the teaching ranks for the state.
