As our state prepares to meet the challenges of the 21st century, institutions of higher education will be a vital asset in overcoming these challenges and identifying possible solutions. Two and four-year colleges and universities supply our communities with trained graduates and furnish our industries with cutting edge technologies. Yet as the pace of change quickens, and the need for informed, responsive policy-making grows, students must play a more direct and effective role in informed decision-making. - Institute for Emerging Issues, 2011
The Emerging Issues for Future Leaders program (EIFL) is a collaboration between the Division of Enrollment Management and Services and the Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI). EIFL is a 2 ½ day residential summer program for promising youth in 11th and 12th grades.
North Carolina State University offers this summer enrichment program that will encompass stimulating academic experiences and exciting social activities designed to activate the unique gifts of students from surrounding counties. EIFL aims to instruct and empower high school students from North Carolina to become leaders that are locally responsive and globally engaged.
