Dr. Anna Krome-Lukens, an alumna of the UNC History Department’s PhD Program who has returned to the campus to teach in the Department of Public Policy, was recently awarded the 2024 Chapman Family Teaching Award. Selected as one of 25 award winners (in an array of categories) across more than 600 nominees, Dr. Krome-Lukens was celebrated for having restructured the Capstone to Public Policy Program and having, the committee explained, a “direct and lasting influence on the career development and planning of all PLCY majors.”

Originally from Virginia, received her BA in History and Anthropology from the University of Virginia and her PhD in History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Her research at UNC focused on eugenics, children, and welfare in early 20th century American history.

Dr. Krome-Lukens plans to use the funding from the Chapman Family award to develop a book along with her students that “combines theoretical perspectives and case studies to answer the question ‘Why does History matter to public policy?'” She is currently a Teaching Associate Professor and Director of Experiential Education in the Department of Public Policy.

Congratulations Dr. Krome-Lukens!
