Creating prosperity in North Carolina and beyond

NC State University takes a real-world, solution-oriented approach to educating its students and to serving the public good. We are committed to being a vital resource for individuals, families, businesses and social institutions, and to reaching beyond the campus to make our state, our nation and our world better places to live, learn, work and grow.

NC State outreach activities involve every academic unit and research center, weave together course requirements and community service, and link faculty and students with people, communities and industries of North Carolina through non-credit activities and offerings on campus, at off-campus locations throughout the state and online. From the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, to the Industrial Extension Service, to the Small Business and Technology Development Center; from Centennial Campus, to the McKimmon Center for Extension and Continuing Education, to the Economic Development Partnership; and from the Office of Technology Transfer, to the Nanotechnology Initiative, to the Science House, our outreach and engagement programs are transforming lives and economies in North Carolina and beyond.

The Office of Outreach and Engagement is dedicated to enhancing, promoting and expanding NC State's efforts to create economic, social, intellectual, and environmental well-being in North Carolina, the U.S., and the world.
