MISSION

Equipping the NC State community for a leaner, smarter, stronger future

VISION

A culture that creates leaders and sustainable solutions for global challenges

APPROACH

Real-world problems of environmental and economic stewardship, human health and well-being, and social equity are best solved when the boundaries of classroom, campus and community are dissolved. That’s why we utilize NC State’s campus as a living laboratory and model for experiential education, research and outreach that creates sustainable solutions for global challenges.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

  • Impact that improves communities and lives
  • Stewardship of economic and natural resources
  • Collaboration with interdisciplinary partners to do more together than alone
  • Connections of people and ideas that weave together common threads and boost efficiency
  • Experiential education that equips students for careers while improving campus
  • Shared responsibility that recognizes interdependence and calls for action
  • Innovation that addresses grand challenges of society and creates local and global prosperity
