The World of Difference Dinner is a gala held each fall to honor alumni and friends who give to the School and celebrate the professors, students and programs that benefit from their generosity. Invited guests include members of the School’s Cornerstone Society, Rosenau Society and UNC’s Gerrard Legacy Society, as well as benefactors who have endowed scholarships or professorships, or have named parts of the building or established specialty funds.
The name says it all — your gifts to the School do make a world of difference. They provide scholarships for the next generation of public health leaders. They retain renowned faculty members to teach and conduct cutting-edge research. They allow us to undertake a number of special projects to maintain our standing as the leading public school of public health.
Last year David Gura, Washington correspondent from NPR’s Marketplace, served as our master of ceremonies. This year we are pleased to announce that Leoneda Inge, WUNC North Carolina Public Radio’s Changing Economy reporter, will Emcee an evening dedicated to celebrating the generosity of our alumni and friends.
