Making a Difference on Multiple Fronts
At NC State, an academy is a strategically-focused university-level interdisciplinary unit with the potential for and goal of working with all 10 colleges. Academies provide a common ground for faculty, staff and students of colleges, centers, institutes and other initiatives to connect and contribute to NC State’s key areas of interdisciplinary strength, providing leadership for North Carolina, the nation and world. The work of the academies will address all three pillars of the university’s land-grant mission: excellent teaching, the creation and application of knowledge, and engagement with public and private partners. Each academy is overseen by an executive director reporting to the Senior Vice Provost for University Interdisciplinary Programs.
