Housing Partners with UNC School of Social Work

UNC-Chapel Hill graduate student Alex Lombardi had an aha moment shortly after she began working as an intern for the Housing Department.

Public housing neighborhoods in Chapel Hill are surrounded by student housing. But the communities and residents don’t really mix.

“In Chapel Hill, public housing is so well integrated, that many students are unaware,” she said. “When you’re a student you’re in a sort of bubble.”

Now Lombardi wants to get to know her neighbors – and it’s because of where she works. She is the first student from UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Social Work in a new field instruction course based at the Town of Chapel Hill Housing Department.

Calling All Chapel Hill Young Professionals and Millennials

Join Us for a Marketing Research Project

Post Date:08/17/2017 9:06 AM

The Town of Chapel Hill Economic Development Office seeks participants on a research project to be held on Monday, Aug. 21, at Extraordinary Ventures, 200 South Elliott Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27514.

You share your ideas, and enjoy meeting with others over breakfast or lunch. Two sessions will be held from 8 to 10 a.m., and from noon to 2 p.m.

The core focus of the Commercial Development Strategy is to build the Chapel Hill commercial tax base and support sustainable job growth. A component of this effort has included storytelling- spreading the word about the great things happening in Chapel Hill, as well as our high quality of life and strong, innovative economy.

In order to better tell the Chapel Hill story, we need to complete some market research. We are looking to engage two informal focus groups of millennial/young professionals, and post-doc professionals to better understand our strengths and opportunities in recruiting (and retaining) a talented and diverse workforce.



The 8 a.m. time registration is: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/market-research-post-docs-and-millennials-tickets-36745465677  Breakfast will be served.

The 12 p.m. time registration is : https://www.eventbrite.com/e/copy-of-market-research-post-docs-and-millennials-ii-tickets-36786142342 Lunch will be served.

The sessions should last approximately 2 hours and will give you an opportunity to share your thinking about Chapel Hill. Be sure to register by clicking the above links.

If you know others that might desire to participate, please feel free to forward this email. We have limited each group to a maximum of 25 per group to make sure we gather good information and participants have a chance to be engaged.
