Research at A&T

The synthesis of teaching and research is fundamental to North Carolina A&T State University.  An overview of our research can be gleaned by downloading our research brochure.

The Division of Research & Economic Development maintains a balanced and diverse portfolio of basic and applied research programs that are effectively integrated with graduate education.  Over time, these programs have evolved into a number of robust inter-disciplinary centers and institutes, specialized research laboratories and partnerships that sustain the University's core strengths and enhance its competitiveness.  Creating and developing partnerships with private and corporate sponsors, educational institutions, and federal and state agencies is an important pathway to fulfill the mission of the University.  Centers and Institutes are usually multidisciplinary, have an important educational component, and may be established when a collection of faculty have secured long-term funding commitments to pursue unique research, public service, and/or instructional endeavors.
