Director's Message

Greetings and a huge “Aggie Pride!” to you all.

The Office of External Affairs promotes university legislative outreach to federal, state and local elected officials, state agencies, higher education stakeholders, alumni and others who play a role in advancing and supporting policy and legislation that align with the priorities of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.

We seek to promote North Carolina A&T, connect our constituents in support of this work and strengthen relationships with key decision makers.

Whether you’re an N.C. A&T employee, alumnus, student or friend, I hope you will join us as an Aggie Advocate and spread our message on behalf of our great university community. With effective advocacy, we will show our elected officials, policy makers and the community as a whole that North Carolina A&T is a true leader in higher education as we continue to work toward fulfillment of the goals in our strategic plan, “Preeminence 2020-Embracing our Past, Creating our Future.”

Remember that Aggies Lead and Aggies Vote, but most importantly, AGGIES DO!

Our cause speeds on,

Ray Trapp
Director of External Affairs, Office of the Chancellor
North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University
