Feb. 22, 2023

ARE Distinguished Professor Michael Carter was named as one of two recipients of the 2022 Chancellor’s Award for International Engagement. The award recognizes UC Davis faculty and staff members for outstanding international engagement in carrying out the university’s mission of teaching, research, and outreach.

Carter has been a global intellectual leader on the economics of international development for decades. His cutting-edge research on rural financial markets, tenure and land markets, new agricultural technologies, poverty traps and index insurance have advanced the field and had tremendous impact on both scholarly and policy communities.

Carter is dedicated to building capacity around the world to address poverty in low-income countries and has touched the lives of students and scholars at UC Davis and throughout the developing world. He has fostered deep engagement with global partners across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, as well as multilateral agencies through his work, for example, as Director of the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Markets, Risk and Resilience and the Resilience-plus Innovation Facility.

Carter’s nominators shared that, “Through excellence in research, service and teaching, he has brought the world to students and colleagues at UC Davis and inspired them to explore it and has brought the best of what UC Davis has to offer to confront one of the world’s most important challenges, global poverty reduction.”
