The Institute for the Arts and Humanities (IAH) serves as UNC-Chapel Hill’s faculty home for interdisciplinary conversation and collaboration. The IAH supports its mission through its commitment to three interrelated areas of faculty life: scholarship, leadership, and fellowship.

IAH Associate Director and Professor of English and Comparative Literature Jennifer Ho had this to say about Nguyen: “Mai’s knowledge of how the university works, how to find resources to enhance one’s scholarship, and how to live a full life that balances the personal with the academic is both laudable and admirable, and we are very excited for her to take on her role as NFP director.”

Mai Thi Nguyen's research focuses on housing policy, social and spatial inequality, urban growth phenomena and governance, the relationship between the built and social environments, and socially vulnerable populations. She is currently the MCRP Admissions Director and the Housing & Community Development Specialization Director.
