Partnering to Combat Student Housing Insecurity

Since Mary Haskett's 2017 study illustrated the need to address food and housing insecurity faced by NC State students, campus and community partners have worked on ways to respond. Grants from the NC State University Foundation are supporting development of a Host Homes Program, which will match students facing homelessness or housing insecurity with members of the community willing to open their homes. At the same time, an interdisciplinary partnership with Professor Tom Barrie in the College of Design is exploring what it might look like to provide housing on or near campus.

Beyond the Belltower: Season 2

Beyond the Bell Tower is a podcast for students enrolled in NC State's TRIO programs, with current students, alumni and community members sharing personal stories to offer guidance. While aid programs help students overcome financial barriers to higher education, TRIO addresses class, social and cultural barriers; although TRIO is federally funded, there are many opportunities for donors to support opportunity for its students. The most recent episode of Beyond the Bell Tower features Khalia Braswell, a 2013 alumna and the CEO and founder of INTech, a nonprofit fostering interest in technology among young girls of color.
