The Chancellor’s Speaker Series will feature guest lecturers of national and global recognition who reflect preeminence in their respective fields. Areas of interest will include leadership, entrepreneurship, culture, politics and social awareness, though they are not limited to that.

Chancellor’s Town Hall

Chancellor's Town Hall SeriesLaunched in March 2017, the Chancellor’s Town Hall initiative was created on behalf of Chancellor Harold L. Martin Sr. to bring nationally distinguished guests to Greensboro for campus dialogue on matters of current and abiding importance to the university community and the world beyond. It is part of North Carolina A&T’s commitment to creating an intellectual climate that encourages the creative exchange of ideas.


As a national leader in STEM education and America’s leading source of African American graduates in such disciplines as engineering, agricultural science and accounting, N.C. A&T seeks to provide through these town halls an ongoing platform for high-profile exploration of major social, political, cultural, environmental and economic issues.

The inaugural Chancellor’s Town Hall was held March 13 with Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who discussed “Building [Community” with a group of nearly 200 students. It was streamed via Facebook Live to millions of viewers around the world.
