An Academic-Community Network

About Us

The CTS is a Carolina Seminar that brings together faculty from UNC-CH and UNC-G along with community partners to address issues that matter most to children, youth, families and the institutions that serve them.  CTS events are open to scholars and community members across the triangle and triad regardless of discipline and organizational affiliation. Our goal is to address real world issues through partnerships that disseminate research to the broader community and make the needs of the broader community central to the research agendas of academics. In 2021-2022, we focused on how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted youth. In 2022-2023 we will focus on recovery and resilience in children and youth whether around issues of COVID-19 or other forms of stress and challenge.  The program is facilitated by Andrea Hussong (UNC-CH), Jennifer Coffman (UNC-G), and Gabriela Livas Stein (UNC-G),

Resilience and Recovery for Youth and Children in the Time of COVID
Dr. Andrea Hussong (UNC-CH) will present on the work of the Care-to-Share Network and on Resilience and Recovery for Youth and Children in the time of COVID.  The presentation will be in-person on the UNC-Greensboro campus and livestreamed to any interested participants.  Because we value community engagement and networking, we will spend time after the presentation in conversation with one another (both in-person and via zoom), with a reception to follow.
Event is free and open to all academic or community members, though registration is required for purposes of internet security. (REGISTER HERE). A van will provide transportation from UNC-CH to UNC-G for anyone interested in joining in-person and connecting with colleagues across the area.

Open Working Group Meeting
A goal of the Care-to-Share network is to distill lessons from our academic and community partnerships through care-to-share events throughout the year and to disseminate those lessons back to the broader community. This working group, led by Dr. Andrea Hussong, will serve to envision and create dissemination materials that will serve this purpose for our 2022-2023 year.

Community Partner Field Trip
As part of the Care-to-Share Network, we provide opportunities for academic researchers to visit on-site with community partners already engaged in or interested in pursuing collaborative research.  Participation in these events is limited out of respect for our community partners. Partners will present on their work, strengths, and challenges; provide an orientation to the physical space and resources of the organization when appropriate; and engage with scholars in question and answer sessions. 
More information on our partner for December and the opportunity to register to participate will be made available shortly.
