RALEIGH — Nearly 30 members of the Chinese government will meet staff at the state Employment Security Commission to learn how the agency works with job seekers, businesses and the unemployed.

The meeting will be held Friday at the ESC’s main office in Raleigh.

The Chinese officials are participating in a five-month program at the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University in Durham. Senior program coordinator Jason Kulasingam says the Chinese learn how to be better government officials and administrators by getting tools for policy making and policy analysis.

They work with faculty at the Sanford school, at Duke and at other area universities.

CHARLOTTE — The University of North Carolina at Charlotte has released a master plan with the main goal of showing how the school will handle a projected enrollment of 10,000 more students by 2020.

The Charlotte Observer reported the plan unveiled Thursday shows how many new classrooms, residential beds and parking spaces the school will need to handle a projected 35,000 students in 11 more years. The school now has about 24,700 students.

The plan shown to trustees includes other ambitions, including a football stadium and an arts center. Campus leaders say the plan is still preliminary and designs could change.

The proposal doesn’t include a cost estimate. No money has been allocated for most of the projects.
