We approach university governance with an emphasis on transparency and open communications with students, faculty and staff.

Collaborative Focus

The entire NC State community shares responsibility for the university’s growth. By embracing shared governance, we increase campus collaboration and help move the university forward.

Our shared approach involves the provost, college deans, department heads, the faculty senate and departmental faculty members. We work together to develop and implement policies and procedures that have a positive, lasting impact. These efforts continue to make NC State an inclusive community and a university of choice for outstanding faculty, staff and students.


In alignment with UNC system rules and regulations, as well as with NC State’s culture of transparency, we provide a variety of additional resources on system and university governance.
