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.
