He teaches Political and Civil Rights at the law school and is the faculty advisor to the Julius Chambers Civil Rights Moot Court team.
He served on the Carrboro Board of Aldermen from 1999-2003 and was a member of the county’s Affordable Housing Task Force. He was a board member and president of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro ACLU and has been actively engaged in a number of local civil rights and social justice issues. Mark was elected to the Orange County Board of Commissioners in 2012, in December 2015 was elected Vice-Chair, and last December its chair. Since his election, Mark has served as a leader on a number of county boards and commissions.
