The Center for Urban & Regional Studies was pleased to host researchers from across the university at its annual Faculty Fellows luncheon. Faculty Fellows representing eight academic departments and the School of Government were joined at the event by representatives from the Dean’s Office and the Center for Community Capital (CCC).
CURS Director Bill Rohe welcomed guests and spoke briefly to the gathered invitees about the Faculty Fellows program, its goals, and the high quality research that has been supported by the Center. Dr. Rohe then introduced the invited speakers: Mimi Chapman, winner of the first China Urbanization Research Proposal Competition; Lindsay Maurer Braun, doctoral student at the Department of City & Regional Planning; Torin Monahan, the CURS 2014-2015 Scholar-in-Residence; and Lucy Gorham of the CCC. Following the guest speakers, CURS Associate Director Todd Owen took the floor and wrapped up the event with two drawings for $500 in research support for Faculty Fellows.
