KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little

Kansas City, KS – In May, the University of Kansas Board of Regents named KU's 17th Chancellor, replacing Robert Hemenway, who had served in that role for 14 years. It turned out to be a history-making choice.

Dr. Bernadette Gray-Little is the first African American and the first woman to serve as Chancellor of the university. Gray-Little grew up in eastern North Carolina, and received her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from St. Louis University. She later got into university administration, and served as Provost of the University of North Carolina.

KCUR's Susan B. Wilson recently caught up with Chancellor Gray-Little on a visit KU Medical Center.
