From the Chancellor
As chancellor of NC State University, it’s my privilege — and pleasure — to see our institution take its place among the nation’s top-performing universities.
This is already the campus of choice for people who want to get things done. Our work has helped to bring more than $1.9 billion in capital investment to North Carolina this year. We’re fourth in the nation for the proportion of research sponsored by industry. And we’re the first university in North America to establish an IBM Q Hub, a leading-edge partnership to harness quantum computing.
A record number of high school students applied to NC State last year, and the incoming class was our largest and most qualified yet — surpassed only by our cohort for this year. We’re consistently named among the best values in higher education, which is one reason why more in-state students are applying to NC State than to any other public university in North Carolina.
Two years ago, we announced an unprecedented fundraising effort — the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign — to match our unprecedented momentum. We set a big, bold goal of $1.6 billion in private support. With three years left in the campaign, we’re 87 percent of the way there.
Our alumni, donors and friends are proud of this university and excited about its future — and so am I. Across this site, you’ll find out why.

The university’s endowment is an important source of funds for NC State. Money generated by the endowment pays for scholarships and fellowships for talented students, professorships and chairs for distinguished faculty members and programs advancing research and academic endeavors across campus.
Chancellor Randy Woodson has focused on efforts to grow the endowment since he arrived at NC State in 2010. Those efforts have been remarkably successful, resulting in an increase of more than 142 percent since then. The endowment is valued at more than $1.1 billion in total assets.
The aggregate endowment investment return was over 12 percent for the fiscal year ending June 30, according to the treasurer’s office.
