!"#$%& !"''%!$("' SPRING/SUMMER 2012 CIVIC EDUCATION CONSORTIUM North Carolina After 15 years at the School of Government, the NC Civic Education Consortium recently moved to the Program in the Humanities and Human Values in the UNC-Chapel Hill College of Arts and Sciences. The Consortium and the Program in the Humanities have collaborated frequently to provide public school teachers with lesson plans and resources on civic education. The change in location allows the Consortium to continue this important work and take advantage of new opportunities to expand with increased financial and operational resources. The Consortium's former director, Kelley O'Brien, has remained at the School in a new position as director for strategy and innovation. Consortium project directors Christie Hinson and Paul Bonnici transitioned with the Consortium to the Program in the Humanities. K NA P P - S A N D E !

Wright Lecture presented at the School on November 3. Drawing upon his experience as co-chair of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, Bowles emphasized the need for the United States to drastically cut the national deficit to improve the economy. Bowles serves on the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget and has served as director of the U.S. Small Business Administration, deputy chief of sta+ and chief of sta+ in the Clinton administration, and president of the University of North Carolina system (2006 – 2010).
