    About Us

    The UNC Highway Safety Research Center is working hard to help shape the field of transportation safety. Our mission is to improve the safety, sustainability, and efficiency of all surface transportation modes through a balanced, interdisciplinary program of research, evaluation, and information dissemination. We are committed to excellence in sound research, and safety is the preeminent goal – every day and in every project our staff undertakes. Learn more at www.hsrc.unc.edu.

    All contributions made to the Center through GiveUNC will be dedicated to two HSRC scholarships designed to support the education of NC undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in exploring transportation-related areas of study, including, but not limited to, computer science and data analytics, engineering, environmental studies, planning, public health and epidemiology, and psychology.

    • The goal of the HSRC Diversity Scholarship ($5,000) is to encourage Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in transportation safety.
    • The Megan Cornog Memorial Highway Safety Scholarship ($1,500), named in memory of HSRC staff member Megan Cornog, aims to support students in NC seeking graduate degrees in transportation safety–related fields.

    Your gift to HSRC is an investment in ensuring valuable perspectives are included in work geared toward safer roadways for all users, in all places.

    At its 5/4 meeting, Council enacted an anti-dooring ordinance. This ordinance makes it unlawful for a driver to open their car door in a way that puts bicyclists, pedestrians, and drivers in danger. Check rearview and sideview mirrors before leaving your vehicle. #VisionZeroCH
