Recipients of 18th Annual Steven D. Manners Awards Announced

Three people have been selected for the Steven D. Manners Faculty Development Awards, given out annually since 2001 by Pitt’s University Center for Social and Urban Research (UCSUR) to promising research projects in the social, behavioral and policy sciences on campus.
