Harold Martin Sr. is the 12th chancellor of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Harold brought more than 30 years of transformative leadership experience in higher education to the role. He is the first alumnus to serve as the university’s chief executive. 

Harold’s leadership has been distinguished by a focus on long-range strategic planning and tactical leadership that have dramatically improved North Carolina A&T’s standing among the nation’s land grant, doctoral research universities, as well as among historically black colleges and universities (HBCU). An institution recognized for its leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), N.C. A&T has expanded its focus on academic excellence to include all disciplines. Under Martin’s leadership, it has become one of the nation’s top producers of African American graduates in engineering, mathematics, statistics, agriculture, journalism, visual and performing arts, marketing and physical sciences.
