Congratulatons to Barry Rabe!
The Regents of the University of Michigan have approved our recommendation to appoint Barry G. Rabe (STPP Steering Committee) as the J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Professor of Public Policy for a five-year renewable term, effective November 1, 2011 through October 31, 2016.
The Harris Professorship was established by a generous gift from the J. Ira and Nicki Harris Foundation. The Regents approved the establishment of the J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Professorship in Public Policy in May 2003. The purpose of the professorship is to support research and instruction in key areas related to public policy, including a wide range of economic and political issues.
Look for more information soon about a public lecture that Barry will make as we mark and celebrate the occasion of his appointment as the Harris Family Professor of Public Policy.
