The UNC Center on Poverty, Work & Opportunity prides itself on being an interdisciplinary center that collects the talents of students and professors from all across UNC's campus and beyond. Our best work, however, is the result of community collaborations.

The Analysis and Commentary section is a collection of our most recent projects. On the left sidebar you will see links to help you navigate the following sections:

  • Seeing the Invisible is our year-long series of featured op-eds in the News & Observer, which covers various topics related to North Carolina poverty.
  • In the Media is a collection of the Center's commentary in print, radio, and television spots.
  • Urban Poverty Research features information on poverty in North Carolina's cities - where high-poverty neighborhoods are often statistically masked by relatively moderate county-wide poverty rates.
  • Our Policy Brief Series includes the thoughts of some of the most brilliant professors across campus on a wide variety of issues.
  • The Foreclosure Project, headed by Heather Hunt, is an in-depth study of the foreclosure crisis and how it has affected our state.
  • The Access to Justice Section is our take on one of the legal system's great unfulfilled promises, featuring a particular focus on a proposed civil right to counsel.
  • Student Research /Past Projects is a repository for past student writings, and serves as an archive for the great work of our former interns, externs, and fellows.
