Pam Fawcett-Brandon and William P. Brandon Endowment for the Graduate Public Policy Program
This endowment was established by Professor Brandon as an expression of his commitment to graduate education in public policy as demonstrated by his role in the collaborative effort to establish and then grow the interdisciplinary Public Policy PhD Program at UNC Charlotte. One of the most productive aspects of his twenty-one year career at UNC Charlotte has been his work with doctoral students. He was involved in attempts to establish a Public Policy PhD from the time of his arrival at UNC Charlotte in spring 1994. Under the leadership of Robert Mundt, Dean of the Graduate School, the Public Policy PhD was finally approved in summer, 2001, and the first students matriculated in August. As the first Metrolina Medical Foundation Distinguished Professor of Health Policy, he focused on working with health-oriented colleagues to develop the health policy concentration and with students to prepare them for applied and academic positions in health policy.
