College Research

With a long history of educating strong women, Meredith is positioned to take on national prominence as a leading source of important research on selected women’s issues. Building on the momentum of The Status of Girls in North Carolina report, the College released The Status of Women in North Carolina Politics and launched The Meredith College Poll – both of which offer insight into how the state’s citizens perceive women as political leaders.

As Meredith continues to conduct vital research for and about women, future areas of focus may include women and their workplace conditions, earnings, education, work patterns, and leadership development.
