Gene Nichol, the former head of the UNC Chapel Hill Poverty Center prior to its closing, will be speaking at the Schaefer Center Thursday.

Nichol, who is also a law professor, will give a speech titled “Poverty, Politics and Academic Freedom in North Carolina,” according to an AAUP press release.

In the past, Nichol has been critical of state leaders on a number of issues, including the UNC Board of Governor’s closing of several UNC centers earlier this year, including his own poverty center.

The decision to close the centers was viewed by many as politically-motivated.

The event will begin at 8 p.m. and is “free and open to the public,” according to the press release.
