Center for Housing and Community Engagement

Interns and Volunteers

Solving housing issues demands a multidisciplinary and multi-method approach. In response, the CHCS was established to provide expertise from community-engaged scholars and students in multiple disciplines: Geography, Urban Planning, Economics, Political Science, Sociology, Public Health, and Interior Architecture.
We are currently accepting applications for unpaid student research interns (graduate and undergraduate). If  you are interested in working at the Center for Housing and Community Studies, please send a cover letter, current resume, and two letters of reference (at least one from a UNCG faculty member) to chcs@uncg.edu.

Emily graduated with my Bachelors in Mathematics with a concentration in Statistics from UNCG with full university honors, where she also earned the Student Excellence Award and presented research at two conferences hosted by UNCG. She has interned with the Bureau of Labor Statistics and is currently a Master’s student at UNCG studying Mathematics with a concentration in Applied Statistics. As a tutor in the Math Help Center at UNCG, she finds herself trying encourage many undergraduates through their Statistics courses with hopes to change their negative opinions of it so that they will see the importance of statistics and research. Her biggest research interest is biostatistics because she hopes to improve the health outcomes of those around me. When she is not busy with school she enjoys spending time outside, doing anything crafty, and playing the flute.
