As a Humanities for the Public Good Graduate Fellow, W. Pierce Holloway (MCRP ’22) works on the Latino Migration Project (under the Building Integrated Communities Initiative) where he focuses on visualizing & analyzing city immigration data and patterns that inform and influence city policies.
The Building Integrated Communities (BIC) initiative is a North Carolina state-wide program launched in 2010 with the mission of helping local governments engage with immigrant and refugee populations to enhance communication and promote economic development.
Pierce is a first-year master’s student at the Department of City and Regional Planning with a focus on Climate Change Adaptation. Before coming to Chapel Hill, he worked as a geospatial analyst for Urban3, working on visualizing economic productivity of communities and states. Through this fellowship position his work will aid in the larger goal of a more equitable and resilient society with representative leadership among local governments.
