Southern Summit on Philanthropy and the Academy

Monday, September 9, 2019 (All day) to Friday, September 20, 2019 (All day)

UNC's Center for the Study of the American South is partnering with the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke to host a series of interdisciplinary, public conversations on persistent and emerging issues in southern communities. Led by the Fall 2019 Keohane Visiting Professor Dr. Sherry Magill, Duke and UNC-CH will connect the principle concerns of philanthropic foundations, higher education institutions, and southern communities during two residencies in September and November. More information and schedule.

Led by Dr. Magill, Duke and UNC-CH will explore our most persistent problems, highlight emerging challenges, and examine promising solutions. We will connect the principle concerns of philanthropic foundations, higher education institutions, and southern communities. What are the missed connections and possibilities between these participants and institutions? What can we build if we work together?

The Keohane Professorship recognizes the remarkable contributions of Dr. Nannerl Keohane during her term as President of Duke University, and the unprecedented level of collaboration she and former UNC Chancellor James Moeser created between these two great institutions. The award was created in 2004 by then Chancellor Moeser and is funded by Carolina graduate Julian Robertson and his late wife, Josie, of New York (parents of Spencer, Duke '98, and Alex, UNC '01, Robertson) and the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust.
