Resident Driven

Person centered, resident driven.

We're Resident driven.

We’re resident driven.

At Carolina Meadows, we believe that our residents know their ambitions, aspirations and concerns and can identify the resources needed to act on them. Our 30-year history has shown us that resident driven engagement results in improved lives, greater equity, new or strengthened campus programs, new standards or expectations for life in the community and improved quality of life for all. Today, our residents – over 725 strong – take an active role in our governance through our non-profit Residents’ Association and our volunteer, community-based Board of Directors.

The Residents’ Association has 23 committees that deal with all aspects of campus life. Five of them are advisory to the Carolina Meadows administration:

  • Budget and Finance
  • Building and Grounds
  • Dining Services
  • Health and Wellness
  • Public Relations
