Re: Ariela Gross

Ariela Gross was quoted on the appointment of Carol Folt as USC's new president. “It’s a great choice,” she said. “I think at Chapel Hill, Carol Folt showed herself to be a person of great integrity, someone with moral leadership, someone who wasn’t afraid to get out in front of issues — and also a really caring leader and teacher who worked with students and with faculty in an educational community.”
