 EPA gives UNC-Chapel Hill funding to help communities across the country that are facing challenges with water infrastructure

 

 

(Chapel Hill, N.C.— March 24, 2016) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has provided $500,000 in funding to The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ‘s Environmental Finance Center (EFC) to assist communities addressing water infrastructure challenges. The funding also goes to partner organization, Southwest Environmental Finance Center at the University of New Mexico.

 

The two organizations will use the funding to jointly manage the WaterCARE (Community Assistance for Resiliency and Excellence) project over two years. During that time they will help 10 communities across the country develop robust and resilient finance strategies for long-term water infrastructure support. This work will be carried out by members of the Environmental Finance Center Network, a team of university-based centers from across the country.

 

WaterCAREmap1

 

WaterCARE is an initiative of the EPA’s Water Infrastructure and Resiliency Finance Center, which acts as a resource to communities that are financing drinking water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure. The center is part of the White House Build America Investment Initiative—a government-wide effort to increase infrastructure investment and promote economic growth.

 

“Communities depend on adequate drinking water and wastewater services to survive and thrive, and the EPA is committed to providing financial guidance to help them invest in the necessary water infrastructure,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “The need for resilient and sustainable infrastructure becomes more important as water resources are strained by the impacts of climate change, such as flooding, drought, storms and sea level rise.”

 

The EFC at UNC-Chapel Hill and its partners will meet one-on-one with each community to collaborate and develop a financial strategy that meets their local priorities. Each community is dedicated to increasing community sustainability by financing water infrastructure improvements.

 

Communities selected to participate in the WaterCARE program have a need to address public health challenges, affordability considerations and a readiness to proceed with an infrastructure improvement project. The ten communities selected to receive WaterCARE assistance are: Buchanan County, Virginia; the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe, Montana; Gatesville, Texas; Haines Borough, Alaska; the Hoopa Valley Tribe, California; Johnston, Iowa; Lawrence, Massachusetts; Selma, Alabama; the Township of South Orange Village, New Jersey; and Youngstown, Ohio.

 

The Environmental Finance Center at UNC-Chapel Hill is dedicated to enhancing the ability of governments and other organizations to provide environmental programs in fair, effective and financially sustainable ways. The work of the EFC is focused on a variety of environmental areas, including water resources, clean energy, solid waste management and land conservation.

 

The Environmental Finance Center Network is a university-based organization creating innovative solutions to the difficult how-to-pay issues of environmental protection and improvement. The network of nine centers located throughout the United States works with the public and private sectors to promote sustainable environmental solutions while bolstering efforts to manage costs.

UNC-Chapel Hill students traveling science roadshow visits northeastern North Carolina

 

 

(Chapel Hill, N.C. – March 14, 2016) – Two University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill second-year students will spend their spring break visiting communities in northeastern North Carolina with the state’s first-ever traveling science roadshow.

 

 

Jonathan Martinez and Steve Mow, student ambassadors for the North Carolina Science Festival, will present live science demonstrations aboard a ferry crossing the Currituck Sound, as well as at other community sites.

 

 

“One of the most important messages of the North Carolina Science Festival is that science is everywhere you look in our state,” said Jonathan Frederick, director of the North Carolina Science Festival. “We designed the festival’s traveling science roadshow to create opportunities for experiencing science in unexpected locations.

 

 

“It’s a fun way for people of all ages to learn more about science and the North Carolina Science Festival. Jonathan and Steve are great student ambassadors for the festival and for UNC-Chapel Hill.”

 

 

“We are hitting a lot of underrepresented areas where students don’t get a lot of exposure to science and don’t develop the interest for it,” said Martinez, an astrophysics and mathematics major from Gaston, North Carolina, and a graduate of Northampton County High School. “That’s something that we want to change.”

 

 

Mow, a biochemistry major from Longmont, Colorado, and a graduate of Niwot High School, agreed.

 

 

“I hope that this becomes a force for good,” Mow said. “Science is empowering, and getting people excited about it makes it accessible.”

 

 

As part of the traveling science roadshow, Martinez and Mow will lead interactive science experiences adapted from the popular “Science LIVE!” demonstration shows at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, which produces the NC Science Festival.

 

 

The NC Science Festival traveling science roadshow will include these stops:

 

 

• Thursday, March 17, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
Southern Vance Community Resource Fair
Southern Vance High School, 925 Garrett Road, Henderson, North Carolina
• Friday, March 18, 3–6 p.m.
Boys & Girls Club of Edenton/Chowan
131 Morristown Road, Edenton, North Carolina
• Saturday, March 19, 11 a.m. and 12 noon trips (plus others if the schedule permits)
Currituck-Knotts Island Ferry
173 Courthouse Road, Currituck (ferry terminal), North Carolina
• Sunday, March 20, 2–4 p.m.
Tyrrell County Public Library
414 Main Street, Columbia, North Carolina

 

 

The Science Festival Alliance, a network of nearly 50 science festivals across North America, provided funding for the NC Science Festival traveling science roadshow through its “Just Add Science” program.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill offers early-action admission to 6,948

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill offers early-action admission to 6,948
Fourth consecutive year that Carolina has set a record for the number of early-action applicants

 

(Chapel Hill, N.C. – Feb. 4, 2016) – Almost 7,000 candidates from a record first-deadline pool of 19,842 were offered admission to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Fall 2016 entering class last week. The pool was 16 percent larger than last year, marking the fourth consecutive year that Carolina has set a record for the number of early-action applicants. Early action applicants from North Carolina increased by 18 percent over last year.

 

A total of 35,821 students (first and second deadline) have applied for first-year admission, setting the eleventh consecutive record of first-year applications at UNC-Chapel Hill and a 12 percent increase over last year. Decisions for second-deadline applicants will be released by the end of March. The University expects 4,000 new first-year students to enroll in August.

 

“Every year we are honored to offer admission to terrific students from North Carolina, the nation, and the world,” said Stephen Farmer, Vice Provost of Enrollment and Undergraduate Admissions. “The students we’ve admitted early this year are no exception. Through their achievements in and out of the classroom, and through their willingness to serve and lead, they’ve shown us that they’re ready to thrive at Carolina, and to help others thrive, too. Their talent, kindness, and courage, and their diversity of thought and experience, will help them make their mark here at Carolina and far beyond.”

 

Accomplishments of the 6,948 admitted students include winning regional, state and national awards for debating, acting, writing, musical performance, mathematics, science and athletics. For more, click here.

 

Eighty-four percent of all admitted students whose schools reported class rank are ranked in the top 10 percent of their class. Nearly half are ranked in the top 10 students of their high school class.

 

The first student to enroll, just fifteen minutes after decisions were released last Thursday, was Brian Fay, a senior at Athens Drive High School in Raleigh, where he is an all-conference varsity soccer player and served as a community volunteer. “Having visited my brother, who is a senior at UNC, over the past four years, I’m familiar with the caliber of the academic programs and the great atmosphere of the campus. The proximity to home and the fact that Carolina is consistently ranked as a top value for higher education also made this my first choice. I can’t wait to start at Chapel Hill.”

 

Admitted students hail from 96 North Carolina counties, 48 states and 21 countries (including the United States). Twelve percent will be the first generation of their family to graduate from college. Of those who reported race or ethnicity, 36 percent identified themselves as students of color. Three percent (215) are international students.

 

Farmer added that the University is committed to making sure that all students who choose to enroll at Carolina are well positioned to succeed. “Last fall we launched Thrive@Carolina, a University-wide initiative that unites campus partners—faculty, staff and fellow students—in an effort to help all students meet their academic goals,” said Farmer. “We’re excited about this initiative and the difference it will make in the lives of the students who attend Carolina.” For more information, please visit the Thrive@Carolina website.

 

“Even as we celebrate the accomplishments of our admitted students, we are dedicated to helping the thousands of students whom we couldn’t accommodate,” said Farmer. “Our staff will work hard to help the students we’ve disappointed in any way, whether that means consoling them or advising them on transfer admission in the future.”

 

Since July 2015, the admissions office welcomed almost 34,000 visitors (prospective students and family members) for an information session and student-led tour. During this same period, recruitment staff attended 246 regional college fairs, conducted 164 local high school visits and held 40 national college events across the state and nation. The staff also held events in 10 other countries. Along with other recruiting work, the office launched several social media campaigns to engage prospective students online.

UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School recognized for global innovation

School wins award for state-of-the-art leadership app

 

 

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 10.08.45 AM

 

 

(Chapel Hill, N.C. — Feb. 2, 2016) The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) honored the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School Feb. 1, for its global innovation in leadership development.

 

AACSB’s “Innovations That Inspire” award spotlights The Leadership App – a state-of-the-art app that markets UNC Kenan-Flagler’s advanced leadership program. It also serves as a course app for its Leadership Immersion program, an experiential course taught outside of the classroom.

 

“Innovation is part of Carolina’s DNA and we are excited to see UNC Kenan-Flagler’s traditions of curricular innovation and developing leaders recognized by AACSB,” said UNC-Chapel Hill Chancellor Carol L. Folt. “We want our university to be a place where innovators thrive and this award is a great indicator that we’re on the right path.”

 

AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body and membership association for business schools. UNC Kenan-Flagler won in the “outreach and engagement category” and competed against 200 institutions from 35 countries. It was one of just 30 schools selected.

 

The Leadership App markets UNC Kenan-Flagler’s unmatched portfolio of leadership development programs to students, prospective students, recruiters and the broader business community by showcasing the program’s depth with features such as a leadership library, which provides content from UNC Kenan-Flagler and other sources. The app also digitally guides MBA students as they create individual development plans.

 

“Because developing leadership is an educational hallmark at UNC Kenan-Flagler and digital marketing is a critical strategy we use to attract top students, creating a digital app for leadership met our strategic and marketing priorities,” said Douglas A. Shackelford, dean and Meade H. Willis Distinguished Professor of Taxation. “The Leadership App is a unique way to capture a unique program using an innovative approach that builds on our strengths in both leadership and experiential learning.”

 

UNC Kenan-Flagler started its leadership initiative in 2005 to enhance students’ career success.

 

“The Leadership App captures our complete story for the first time and helps students gain the highest ROI on their education,” said Mindy Storrie (EMBA ’97), director of leadership development. “As a portal for the Leadership Immersion, students will use it to connect with course materials, classmates, faculty and executive coaches during competitions, simulations, treks to cities and Outward Bound challenges. UNC Kenan-Flagler is the only business school to offer this type of course and this kind of app.”

 

“The opportunity to develop a course app – the first ever for Carolina – was ideally suited to the Leadership Immersion,” said Michael Schinelli, chief marketing officer at UNC Kenan-Flagler. “It is a mobile app for a truly mobile course designed to meet student needs for interactive digital content. The broader app captures the full range of classes, programs and activities and uses the very latest technology to guide students through their leadership journey at UNC Kenan-Flagler.”

 

The app is designed for iPhone, iPad and Android and can be downloaded here.
