Dear Parr Center supporters,

Please find our Annual Report here, describing the activities we’ve undertaken over the past academic year. I’m extremely proud of the work that our staff has accomplished in facilitating so many interesting and important events on ethics-related topics, and I invite you to be on the lookout, come fall, for other exciting programs that the Parr Center will be hosting. 

In addition to adding to your summer reading list with our annual report, I’m also writing to bid the Carolina community adieu. I will soon be returning to the University of Wisconsin, which I had left in order to take up my post here at UNC. I am returning for family reasons only, having found the work, my colleagues and the UNC community a true delight. It has been an honor serving as the Center’s Director, and I am confident that the interim Director, my colleague Dr. Geoff Sayre-McCord, will help to sustain the Parr Center’s upward trajectory.

All my best,



Russ Shafer-Landau
