NC State: Think and Do

NC State was founded with a purpose: to create economic, societal and intellectual prosperity for the people of North Carolina and the country. We began as a land-grant institution teaching the agricultural and mechanical arts. Today, we're a pre-eminent research enterprise with 12 colleges excelling in all major academic fields.

Our 34,000 high-performing students take what they learn in the classroom and apply it in the real world by conducting research, working in internships and co-ops, and performing acts of world-changing service. That experiential education ensures that they leave here ready to lead the workforce. NC State's 13:1 student-faculty ratio is one of the reasons why we're the best college for your money in North Carolina (Money) and the No. 5 best value among public universities nationally (U.S. News & World Report).

Overcoming Challenges, Improving Lives

NC State is one of only two universities in the nation leading two National Science Foundation Engineering Research Centers — one developing wearable, self-powered health monitors, and the other researching smart-grid technology. We’re also leading interdisciplinary efforts to curb nuclear proliferation, help farmers confront climate change and build a new American manufacturing sector.

Our research doesn't just get published in a journal or sit on a shelf; it makes an impact. NC State is No. 6 nationwide in commercialization agreements based on university research, and we're No. 2 among universities without a medical school. Our Cooperative Extension Service provides research-based information to citizens in all 100 North Carolina counties. In addition, our industrial extension unit — Industry Expansion Solutions — has created an economic benefit for the state's manufacturers averaging $149 million per year since 2005.

Bright Minds Creating a Bold Future

NC State’s 9,000 faculty and staff are world leaders in their fields, bridging the divides between academic disciplines and training high-caliber students to meet tomorrow’s challenges. NC State students won two Goldwater scholarships, five Fulbright scholarships, one Churchill scholarship and a record-breaking 25 National Science Foundation graduate research fellowships in the 2016-2017 academic year. In addition, 25 faculty are members of the National Academies.

Our Centennial Campus, an award-winning public-private research campus, is home to more than 70 partner organizations working alongside more than 70 NC State research and academic units. Centennial is also the location of the innovative Hunt Library, which Timemagazine has dubbed “the library of the future.”

In Raleigh and Around the World

It all happens in one of the best cities in America. A top spot for job-seekers and tech professionals, Raleigh is nationally recognized as a leading urban center:

With Durham and Chapel Hill, Raleigh anchors the Research Triangle, a national hotspot for high-tech enterprise. The top companies in the region — including IBM, Cisco Systems, SAS Institute, Biogen Idec and GlaxoSmithKline — are among the country’s best employers. They also lead the way in hiring new NC State graduates.

More than 130 years after its creation, NC State continues to make its founding purpose a reality. Every day, our career-ready graduates and world-leading faculty make the fruits of learning and discovery available to people across the state, throughout the nation and around the world.

Diversity Profile: NC State University

NC State is a diverse community made up of people from different cultures, races, ethnicities, religions, physical abilities, and sexual orientation. These differences result in a diversity of ideas, knowledge and worldviews that enhance our education and preparation for work in a global economy. History and our own experiences have shown that when diverse ideas interact, the potential for innovation, creativity and understanding increases. As a research-extensive land-grant university, we not only embrace diversity, but we believe it is central to the academic purpose of the institution. When there is diversity of ideas and people, there is new scholarship, innovation, and increased organizational effectiveness.

The DSO works with departments throughout the University to assure that the programs and facilities are accessible to every student at NC State.

North Carolina University has many resources available to assist with diversity needs. If you have a question concerning diversity at NC State or need help with diversity efforts outside OIED, see the resources here.

Student groups are an excellent way to expand your circle of friends, learn new cultures, and challenge existing ideas and viewpoints. Following are just a few examples.

Commitment to Equal Opportunity

It is the policy of the State of North Carolina to provide equality of opportunity in education and employment for all students and employees. Educational and employment decisions should be based on factors that are germane to academic abilities or job performance.  North Carolina State University (“NC State”) strives to build and maintain an environment that supports and rewards individuals on the basis of relevant factors such as ability, merit and performance. Accordingly, NC State engages in equal opportunity and affirmative action efforts, and prohibits discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, as defined by this policy.

AA/EEO Office

The Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED) is committed to fostering an inclusive, accessible, and diverse intellectual and cultural campus experience related to the mission of North Carolina State University (NC State). The OIED facilitates efforts to ensure equity and opportunity, increases awareness of diversity issues through education, and strengthens relationships across diverse groups. Through these efforts, the OIED promotes cultural competence development, thereby fostering a welcoming and respectful campus. By providing guidance, programming, and outreach to constituent groups and the community, and by adhering to accountability and compliance standards, the OIED prepares NC State students, faculty, and staff for local, state, national, and global collaboration.

We bring the offices of Equal Opportunity & Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, and Multicultural Student Affairs together with three campus centers: the African American Cultural Center; the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) Center; and the Women's Center.

Home of NC State University, Raleigh blends the fun and excitement of a big city with the hospitality and charm of a small Southern town. North Carolina’s capital city is located in the heart of the state’s Triangle region and minutes from world-renowned Research Triangle Park, the largest research park in the world and home to industry giants like IBM Cisco, GlaxoSmithKline, Lenovo, Nortel Networks, Sony Ericsson and others.

Raleigh is a city of contrasts beginning with its location. Situated midway between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the beach and the mountains are never more than a two to three-hour drive away. With a vibrant social, sports, cultural and arts scene, multinational business and diverse recreational opportunities, plus a climate that’s mild year round, it’s easy to see why Raleigh and the surrounding region are consistently rated among the best places to live and work in the United States.
