Institute for Emerging Issues

I am pleased to announce that for 2009 I will be a GlaxoSmithKline Faculty Fellow at the Institute for Emerging Issues at NC State University (though I will remain here in Charlotte). The idea is to use academic expertise to educate policy makers and influence public policy. I will be focusing on immigration, and I am really looking forward to the experience.

Congratulations, Greg! I hope that you are going to be able to keep up this blog. I enjoy reading your posts even when I don't agree. You always have something to say that makes me stop and think.

Thanks. It will have no impact on blogging--indeed, the point is to expand public debate on key issues. I actually mentioned the blog in my letter of application as one way to link academia to a broader public audience (in addition to things like Op-Eds, which I will also be writing this year as part of the program).

Congratulations Greg and good luck.
