About Anita Brown-Graham of ncIMPACT

Since September 2016, Anita R. Brown-Graham has led the UNC School of Government's public launch of ncIMPACT—a special initiative that seeks to expand the SOG’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, expansion of pre-kindergarten, extending the labor pool and addressing opioid misuse and abuse. During Brown-Graham’s first tour as an SOG faculty member, from 1994 to 2006, 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 the state's. 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.
