Dr. Carmen Monico has been appointed as a Center for New North Carolinians (CNNC) Research Fellow for 2020-2022. She has served in this capacity since 2014.

The Center for New North Carolinians (CNNC) Fellows are community-based academics, professionals, and practitioners who undertake community-based research, advocacy, education, outreach, and practice related to refugees and immigrants in the state of North Carolina. The CNNC Fellows program began in 2001 as a small group but has now grown to a network of approximately 100 people. The mission of the group is to support the CNNC’s work by strengthening immigrant and refugee communities through participatory research, evaluation, community education and engagement. CNNC Fellows seek to center community interests and goals in these endeavors.

The CNNC Fellows’ Theme for this year is COVID-19 and Refugee and Immigrant Communities — Impact and Response.

Congratulations, Dr. Monico!
