Women + Girls Alliance Research Program
UNC Charlotte, through the Women + Girls Research Alliance/MSEAP, sponsors an internal research funding program designed to assist UNC Charlotte faculty interested in conducting well-defined, purposeful, new research on the social and economic status of women and girls in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg region.
Research underwritten by the Alliance serves as the foundation of the Biennial Summits of the Women + Girls Research Alliance, and is used to promote public dialogue, inform public policy and programmatic priorities and is typically focused on the following key areas:
- Education, employment and economic change
- Civic and political engagement
- Poverty and income security
- Health and safety
- Work and family
