Udall Center Fellows, 2013–2014

With financial support from the UA Institute of the Environment and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy selected three UA faculty members as Udall Center Fellows for 2013–2014.

The Udall Center Fellows program allows faculty members and researchers at The University of Arizona (UA), with release from their teaching and other major responsibilities, to engage in research on any topic related to public policy.

Since 1990, the Udall Center has hosted 131 Fellows from 40 departments and centers across ten colleges at the UA. The fellows and their projects for 2013–2014 are:
