The North Carolina ERC is administered by an Executive Committee consisting of Center Director (Michael R. Flynn, Sc.D.) who also serves as the Industrial Hygiene Program Director, the Director for the Occupational Medicine Program (Dennis Darcey, M.D.), the Director of the Occupational Health Nursing Program, (Bonnie Rogers, Dr. P.H.), and the Director of Continuing Education (Larry Hyde, M.S.). In addition, Mr. Hyde directs the Hazardous Substance Training Program. All programs are located at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill with the exception of Occupational Medicine which is at nearby Duke University. The North Carolina ERC utilizes advisory committees for each of the programs listed above. These committees consist of members from industry, government, and academia, and they provide the various programs with input regarding curricula; needs assessment; and regional, national, and global perspectives on occupational health and safety. Each program advisory committee has a chair who serves as a representative to the Center Advisory Board. The Advisory Board contains an additional labor/community representative and it meets with the ERC Executive Committee to co-ordinate the advisory process, propose action items, and facilitate changes within the ERC. During the period from July 1, 1995 to June 30, 1998 the UNC ERC graduated a total of 47 students in the core disciplines, and offered over 400 continuing education courses to more than 7800 professionals. The ERC remains committed to its mission of providing high-quality education for the occupational health and safety field.
