A&S Faculty Op-eds Supported by Public Voices Fellowships
Nine Arts & Sciences faculty members were among the 20 from the University of Virginia’s different schools and disciplines awarded Public Voices Fellowship as part of a UVA partnership with the OpEd Project.
Part of a national initiative co-directed by Assoc. Prof. Talitha LeFlouria of the Carter G. Woodson Institute, the program aims to increase the public impact of our nation’s top thought leaders, particularly those who have been underrepresented in the public sphere. The Provost and the Vice President for Research at UVA are partnering with The OpEd Project to provide resources and support ensuring that the research and ideas of the selected shape not only academia, but also the larger public conversations of our time.
