Abstract: Our community faces several socio-demographic challenges that have the potential to significantly impact the Greater Greensboro area. These social trends are especially related to broad demographic shifts in the population (e.g., age, ethnic composition, educational achievement, and poverty levels) that have the potential to substantially impact related activities such as school performance, social services, and overall quality of life. The scope of the project is to identify the most significant social trends and demographic changes likely to impact the Greater Greensboro area over the next ten to fifteen years. The overall goal is to provide the Bryan Foundation Board with thought provoking questions and recommendations regarding long-term funding priorities. Particular attention is focused on public schools and higher education needs, social services and overall quality of life.
