Robert Ward, a former chancellor of UNC School of the Arts and a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, died early Wednesday at his home in Durham after a period of failing health.

Ward, 95, was one of the school’s founders and became its second top administrator in 1967 after the death of founding president Vittorio Giannini. Ward oversaw the integration of the school into the UNC system, when his title changed from president to chancellor.
