Systemic Change in STEM Faculty
The Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate - North Carolina Alliance seeks to increase the number of underrepresented minorities (URM) in faculty positions.

How Do You Think and Do?
We want to tell the campus community about something new and different that you’ve learned and/or done since we’ve been apart in the August 2020 issue of the Provost’s Office newsletter. From engaging in social activism and community service, to new research, trying a new hobby or uncovering a hidden talent and more — we want to hear about it all.
Diversity and Inclusion: Recognizing our Shortcomings, Working to Improve
At this challenging time across our nation, and in our own community, we want to be clear where NC State leadership stands: We stand against and condemn white supremacy, racial injustice and all forms of racism and discrimination. NC State’s Black students, faculty and staff deserve a campus culture where they feel safe, supported, respected and valued. We are committed to doing all we can to protect, promote and advance diversity, equity and inclusion at NC State.

Stepping Up to Serve
The Class of 2020 includes many members who will pursue further education or careers in service-related fields where they are needed now more than ever. We spoke to some of those graduates about an unexpected finale to their NC State journey, and how the university prepared them for this moment.
May 2020 Provost’s Corner
While this semester was not one anyone could have anticipated, good things are still happening at NC State. Our students were still able to learn online and make progress toward their degree, and now many of these students can call themselves proud Wolfpack alumni.
Campus Update from Provost Arden and Vice Chancellor Maimone
NC State is moving forward with a phased reactivation plan for critical operations and activities in adherence with the Governor’s Phase 1 mandate. Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety and well-being of our Wolfpack community. NC State will follow all state orders and UNC System guidance, as well as CDC guidelines to help ensure a safe on-campus environment.
