UI Co-Sponsoring Symposium on Charlotte Migration
Many parts of the Carolinas, including the Charlotte region, are seeing a huge influx of newcomers. Who’s moving in and from where? How are they reshaping decades-old demographic patterns?
The UNC Charlotte Urban Institute is joining several other local sponsors to offer a lunchtime symposium on Wednesday, Oct. 26, that will examine Charlotte-area population migration. Rebecca Tippett, director of demography, the Carolina Population Center at UNC Chapel Hill, will be the key presenter. She regularly writes and presents about the impact of demographic and social trends in North Carolina.
The event begins at 11:30 AM at UNC Charlotte Center City and includes lunch. Cost is $15 for those registering by Friday, Oct. 14, and $20 for later registrations.
Graduate Life Fellows Focused on Building Community
This year’s cohort of seven Graduate Life Fellows (GLFs) is focused on building community among their fellow students.
Through the Center for Graduate Life, the GLFs provide leadership-building opportunities through collaborative efforts with campus partners, including faculty, staff, graduate student organizations and various campus offices.
This fall, along with promoting local campaign efforts designed to give back to UNC Charlotte’s graduate community, the GLFs will spearhead “UNC Charlotte’s Got Your Back,” a major crowdfunding initiative that will provide Charlotte’s most at-risk elementary school children with basic educational resources. The initiative also will provide these children with exposure to real students in higher education who will their stories and offer reasons why they should never give up on their dreams.
