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.
