The Partner of Choice
As a top public research university, NC State is tasked with creating prosperity in the state, across the country and around the world. That mission demands we team up with like-minded global institutions to pursue world-class collaborative research, education and outreach.
International Affairs oversees all of NC State’s internationalization efforts, from formalizing strategic partnerships with universities abroad to hosting international hubs and consortia here in Raleigh.
