On September 26, 2018, the Center for Urban and Regional Studies (CURS) hosted researchers from across The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at its annual Faculty Fellows luncheon. Faculty Fellows representing nine academic departments and the Schools of Government and Law were joined at the event by representatives from the Dean’s Office, the Center for Community Capital, the Community Histories Workshop and other special guests.
CURS Director Bill Rohe welcomed guests and spoke briefly to the gathered invitees about the Faculty Fellows program, goals and the high quality research that has been supported by the Center. As is the luncheon’s tradition, each guest then took the floor to give quick summaries of their current research. Following the guest speakers, CURS Associate Director Todd Owen wrapped up the event with a drawing for $500 in research support for Faculty Fellows, which went to Angela Stuesse, assistant professor of anthropology
