The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has named Carolina Law’s Erika Wilson as the recipient of one of five Thomas Willis Lambeth Distinguished Professorships in Public Policy.

This distinguished term professorship celebrates Wilson’s work in the development of public policy that has an impact on the people of NorthCarolina and beyond. Wilson’s research interests focus on issues related toeducation law and policy, specifically obtaining educational equality fordisadvantaged students, and the intersection between race and the law.

“A distinguished professorship is one of the most prestigious and visible honors that the University can bestow on a member of the faculty. It is a symbol of the value Erika’s colleagues have placed on her scholarship and public service,” says Martin H. Brinkley ’92 dean and Arch T. Allen Distinguished Professor of Law.

The Thomas Willis Lambeth Distinguished Chair in Public Policy was established in 2001 by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation in honor of the retirement of Thomas Willis Lambeth, who served as executive director of the foundation from 1978 until 2001.

Income paid from the Thomas Willis Lambeth Distinguished Chair in Public Policy is used to establish an endowed chair to attract or retain a distinguished teacher and scholar in the area of public policy in the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Law, the Kenan-Flagler Business School, the School of Social Work or the School of Government.
