International Trade & Exchange Research Community

Spring 2021 RCITE Faculty Fellows

The Chancellor’s Office, CAS, CSB, and the Office of Research and Innovation (ORI) have joined to together to provide support to create and grow a Research Community in International Trade and Exchange (RCITE). Mark Spaulding (HST) and Pete Schuhmann (ECN) are serving as the principal organizers of the research community. Our ultimate goal over the next few years is to build a permanent center for research and teaching on international trade and exchange here at UNCW.  

As part of our efforts, the RCITE has funded a Spring 2021 cohort of faculty fellows engaged in research and scholarship in trade and exchange at UNCW. Fellows also advance the practical work of getting the material and human resources (the critical mass of funding and network) to make a permanent center for research and teaching of international trade and exchange at UNCW.
