“Anita Brown-Graham ’91 (JD) got kicked out of preschool for refusing to take naps and has been going full tilt ever since.”

So begins the citation for Brown-Graham’s 2023 Faculty Service Award, awarded by the Board of Directors for the UNC General Alumni Association (GAA). Established in 1990, the award honors faculty members who have performed outstanding service for the University or the association.

The Gladys Hall Coates Distinguished Professor of public law and government at the School and the director of the ncIMPACT Initiative, Brown-Graham was honored for her decades of service to North Carolina. She also leads Carolina Across 100, a five-year, pan-university initiative partnering with communities across the state to address pressing challenges in the wake of COVID-19.
