— President Barack Obama will return to the Triangle next week, the White House said Wednesday.

Obama will be at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Tuesday for an official event, meaning it's not a campaign stop, a White House official said. Details of his visit haven't been released.

The president last visited the Triangle in September, when he promoted his job-creation proposal in a speech at North Carolina State University.

He has visited North Carolina five times in the past year, most recently pushing for improved fuel-efficiency at a Freightliner truck plant in Mount Holly last month.
