Three buses fanned across the state, one headed east, one west and one southeast, to give 90 faculty members close-up looks at UNC’s impact on North Carolina via the Tar Heel Bus Tour. It was a revival of what began in 1997 under Chancellor Michael Hooker ’69, who tied the bus tour to a reemphasis on UNC’s service to the state.
In getting the buses started again this fall — the event was axed after the 2008 economic downturn — Interim Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz cited Hooker’s vision. The tour visited 26 towns and cities and rolled more than 1,600 miles in three days.
Here’s a day-by-day look at the tour:

• “Meeting the Hometowns,” July/August 1998 Review
• “If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Rose Hill,” July/August 1997 Review
