Meet the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs

Dr. Beryl McEwen is the provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. The provost is the chief academic officer for the university. Dr. McEwen’s responsibilities include reviewing, evaluating, and recommending changes in academic policies and programs. Dr. McEwen relies on the support of an administrative staff of vice provosts, associate vice provosts, and directors of academic affairs to supervise a wide range of North Carolina A&T programs and initiatives.

A recognized leader in business, strategic planning, academic accreditation, and classroom teaching, Dr. McEwen has served in multiple roles at North Carolina A&T over the past 23 years, including chair of the Department of Business Education, vice provost for strategic planning and institutional effectiveness, dean of the College of Business and Economics, and most recently, interim provost and vice chancellor of academic affairs.

During her tenure as vice provost for strategic planning and institutional effectiveness, Dr. McEwen oversaw North Carolina A&T’s accreditation efforts. She played an essential role in monitoring institutional progress around the university’s strategic plan, Preeminence 2020, and built systems to facilitate learning outcomes assessments important to the university’s progress on the plan’s goals and accreditation standards.

As dean, Dr. McEwen managed a business college that serves more than 1,400 undergraduate and graduate students with departments in Accounting and Finance, Business Education, Economics, Management, and Marketing Transportation and Supply Chain Management. It is one of only 700 such colleges globally to hold the prestigious AACSB International accreditation and one of only 200 to hold that accreditation for its Accounting program. Under her leadership, the college earned reaffirmation of its accreditation and successfully launched both the M.B.A. and M.B.A. Online programs. Her work has been recognized by such organizations as the National Business Education Association, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Business Education Hall of Fame, and the Triad Business Journal, which honored her with an Outstanding Women in Business Award in 2017.

Dr. McEwen holds a bachelor’s degree in business education from the University of Technology, Jamaica, and a master’s degree and doctorate in business education from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
