Episode 7: Distinguished Professorships With Walt Wolfram

On the Season 1 finale of the NC State Philanthropy Podcast, we’re joined by sociolinguist and William C. Friday Distinguished Professor Walt Wolfram to hear how private support has benefited his work on campus and beyond. Wolfram has taught at NC State for three decades and is still going strong, having also produced several books and films during that time on the various dialects found all across North Carolina. He was a personal friend of Mr. Friday before the latter’s passing, too, and seeks to honor his memory through the research made possible by the late UNC System president’s professorship.
