About ncIMPACT
ncIMPACT examines issues around our state including education, jobs, healthcare, and others. Our host, Anita Brown-Graham, from the UNC School of Government, goes into the communities that are tackling these problems head on. Talking to the people on the ground, Brown-Graham identifies ways in which they are positively affecting others and making change.

The question remains, can these innovative solutions be applied in other communities across the state? UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina is partnering with the UNC School of Government, with exclusive sponsorship by Civic Federal Credit Union, for this compelling new series.

Premieres Thursday, January 17, at 10 PM, on UNC-TV

75% of Forsyth County's four year olds don't have access to high quality, pre-Kindergarten programs. The Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust is making a multi-year, multi-million dollar invest to expand pre-K access to all Forsyth County children nearly two decades before these children enter the workforce.

Our Host
Anita R. Brown-Graham

Anita R. Brown-Graham rejoined the School of Government in September 2016 to lead the public launch of ncIMPACT—a special initiative that seeks to expand the School’s capacity to work with public officials on complex policy issues. Since her arrival, she and her colleagues have devised programs to support communities working on economic mobility, poverty, the expansion of prekindergarten, extending the labor pool and opioid misuse and abuse. Brown-Graham’s first tour as a School faculty member was from 1994 to 2006, during which she specialized in governmental liability and community economic development aimed at revitalizing communities. In 2007, Brown-Graham became Director of the Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) at NC State University. There, she led IEI’s efforts to build North Carolina’s capacity for economic development and prosperity, working with leaders from across the state in the areas of business, government and higher education to focus on issues important to North Carolina’s future. Brown-Graham began her career as a law clerk in the Eastern District of California. She is a William C. Friday Fellow, American Marshall Fellow and Eisenhower Fellow. In 2013, the White House named her a Champion of Change for her work at IEI, and the Triangle Business Journal named her a 2014 Woman in Business for her policy leadership in the state and a 2017 CEO of the year. Brown-Graham serves on the boards of several organizations. She earned an undergraduate degree from Louisiana State University and a law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
