Pauley Lecture Wednesday
"Globalization and North Carolina" will be the topic of Roland Stephen, Ph.D., in the next Ruth Pauley Lecture.
The lecture will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28, in Owens Auditorium on the Sandhills Community College campus in Pinehurst. Admission is free to the public, with no tickets required.
Stephen leads the identification and development of issues to be addressed by the work of the Institute for Emerging Issues at North Carolina State University and oversees that work as it is executed through research, publication, public forums, and policy implementation.
Stephen works closely with partners and stakeholders both inside and outside the university, including business and political leaders, professional staffs, academics and opinion leaders from across North Carolina and the nation.
An associate professor in the Department of Political Science and Public Administration, he has a bachelor's degree in economics and history from Cambridge University and a doctorate in political science from UCLA.
His applied research seeks to identify the policy responses available for economic developers and state leaders given a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive global economy.
The Ruth Pauley Lecture Series is sponsored by Sandhills Community College, the Moore County school system, the Moore County League of Women Voters and the American Association of University Women.
