Royster Faculty Board

We are always looking for faculty volunteers to serve on our Royster Faculty Board. This is a great opportunity for current and recently retired faculty members to become better acquainted with this prestigious fellowship program and also to learn about the fellowship process in general. If you or someone in your program is interested in participating, please contact Associate Dean Jennifer Gerz-Escandón at jenge@email.unc.edu.
