Fall Old Well ColorsThe Carolina Center for Public Service Announces 10 Thorp Faculty Engaged Scholars for 2021-2023.

A new class of 10 Thorp Faculty Engaged Scholars (FES) joined together with peer faculty who are diverse in their research areas and backgrounds. The eighth class of scholars will support each other in scholarship that engages with community throughout the next two years.
