Welcome to the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute

We are a nonpartisan, applied research and community outreach institute at UNC Charlotte, seeking solutions to the social, economic and environmental challenges facing our communities.

Starting Friday, our Regional Indicators website will have a new home on the institute’s main website. You’ll find all the data that was on the previous site, but with improved functionality and a new look.
