GREENSBORO, N.C. (June 28, 2018) – The College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at N.C. A&T will hold a groundbreaking at 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 11, for a $5 million pavilion at the University Farm, 3136 McConnell Road in Greensboro.

Analytical approach to Supply Chain Management  for Growers.

The CAES Extension and Farm Pavilion will expand the farm’s capacity for education, research and outreach. Funded by USDA’s National Institute for Food and Agriculture, the 17,000-square-foot structure
 will include an auditorium, laboratories, a demonstration kitchen, a 50-person classroom and a 400-person conference room.    “The University Farm is ready for its renaissance with the start of the pavilion,’’ says Dr. Shirley Hymon-Parker, interim dean of the CAES.  “We’ve never been dormant, but breaking ground for our new pavilion is the first phase of a four-part building boom taking place at the farm. This growth will help us fulfill our mission to achieve excellence in the food, agricultural, family and environmental sciences.”   USDA-NIFA will provide financial support for three additional projects in the next four years. The subsequent projects are an amphitheater, student and community gardens, and a community and urban food complex with a dairy, research labs, classrooms and a small business incubator.   The University Farm was created in 1904 to provide food to the fledgling university’s cafeteria. The 492-acre farm is now the largest classroom on campus, a laboratory for agricultural research and a showcase of the latest farming resources and technology.

Continued development at the University Farm is in keeping with strategic goals of the university and the CAES to promote excellence in research, strengthen community engagement and outreach, and foster entrepreneurial success. The expansion also portends economic and development benefits for the East Greensboro corridor where it is located.  One of the farm’s greatest advocates is its superintendent, Leon Moses, who started working at the farm when he was an undergraduate.
“After spending 42 years of my life on this farm, I have seen it evolve,” Moses says. “It is an illustrious modern and model farm on a state and national level. My motto is ‘excellence is an effort and not an accident,’ so I firmly believe that the efforts to bring these new facilities to the farm have placed us on a sure path of excellence in agriculture.”

 Best online Schools for Women in STEM.     North Carolina A&T ranked 11th out of 76 institutions. Columbia University topped the list, which also featured such well-known names as Stanford, the University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins and Georgia Tech.  Institutions were chosen due to their support of women pursuing STEM degrees. The top 15 were ranked based on the percentage of women STEM graduates, the number of online STEM degrees offered and the online support for women studying in those disciplines.
To be considered for this list, schools must offer at least five online STEM degrees at the bachelor’s level or higher. N.C. A&T offers seven – four undergraduate and three graduate.

“As a longtime national leader in STEM education, our university is increasingly focused on delivering that same quality of academic experience in online settings,” said Interim Vice Provost for Research, Graduate Programs and Extended Learning, and Dean of the Graduate College Clay Gloster. “It’s gratifying to be recognized as excelling in supporting women in STEM disciplines. Given the national needs for employees in STEM professions, we’re interested in doing even more going forward.”

In this ranking, STEM programs were defined using the National Center for Education Statistics criteria: agriculture and natural resources, architecture, biology and biomedical sciences, computer and information sciences, engineering and engineering technologies, health studies, mathematics and statistics, and physical and social sciences.”  A STEM-friendly score was calculated using a combination of factors, including female representation in student populations, the number of online STEM degrees offered and the extent of online resources and support for women students in STEM disciplines. The maximum score is 100. A&T’s score is 86.22.
In 2008 NC A&T received an 18 Million dollar grant for an Engineering Research Center (ECR) from the National Science foundation. The award to A&T marked the first time that an HBCU has been the lead institution of an ERC.

NC A&T is "well known in areas such as advanced materials, nanotechnology, computational science,  and says N.  Radhakrishnan, former  for research and economic development at N.C. A&T. The school also has significant strengths in other areas, including biotechnology, energy and the environment,  information  sciences and technology,   logistics and  transportation   development.
All  these  endeavors are aligned in eight  research clusters that bring  faculty together across disciplines to   develop large research projects. These research clusters run in parallel with a number of multidisciplinary centers and institutes at N.C. A&T, which develop partnerships with private and corporate sponsors, educational institutions, and government agencies. This includes two US Army Centers of Excellence that are working on projects to enhance the capabilities of soldiers on the battlefield.
