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.
Canceled: Tar Heel Downtown
Due to the threat of inclement weather, Tar Heel Downtown is canceled.
Safety is the top priority. The forecast for Chapel Hill shows a high probability for thunderstorms, with the possibility of severe weather at times.
There is not a makeup date for Tar Heel Downtown. We wish the Tar Heels the best for their upcoming season.
