Dear faculty and staff,
September 2017 marks the one-year anniversary of our inaugural Provost’s Office newsletter. I’ve enjoyed having an additional avenue to share all of the academic happenings at NC State, and to showcase your hard work and accomplishments. We’re one month into the 2017-2018 school year, with exciting times ahead.
I hope you’re also gearing up for this year’s Parents and Families Weekend, taking place from September 15-17. During this time, we’ll host the annual Chocolate Festival, benefiting the Women’s Center, and the NC State v. Furman football game. I encourage you to bring friends and loved ones along to experience all that our great campus has to offer.
On September 18, the Office of Global Engagement will host a delegation from one of our partner institutions, Nagoya University. One of Japan’s National Seven Universities, this esteemed institution supports enhanced research collaboration and academic exchange with NC State professors. President Seiichi Matsuo and seven other university leaders will be on campus, and the day includes a joint NC State/Nagoya University Biomedical Engineering Symposium.
Next month, the NC State European Center in Prague will host its grand reopening. I know the visiting students are enjoying the new facilities, but I am most excited about the expanded study abroad, research and teaching opportunities NC State Prague will be able to afford the entire university community.
And since we are a community, I appreciate your readership of our newsletter and would like to welcome your feedback on our efforts so far. Please let us know what you enjoy reading and what you’d like to see more of by getting in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you and helping continue to meet the needs of our valuable faculty and staff.

Until next time,
Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost
