Economic Development

North Carolina A&T contributes significantly to economic growth and regional prosperity. Our work in sponsored research and educating future members of the area workforce are critical components of our impact in these areas.

Economic growth in turn leads to more jobs, attracting new business to our area, richer community engagement, more business startups, a greater availability of public investment funds, and eased tax burdens.

The power of higher education, collaboration and thought leadership has strengthened the Piedmont Triad economy and, with regard to North Carolina A&T, has resulted in an annual economic footprint across our state in excess of $1 billion. 

Here is a sampling of the organizations with which A&T partners in our pursuit of the opportunities outlined above:

Action Greensboro

City of Greensboro

Forge Greensboro Makerspace

Gateway Research Park and Materials Test Center

Greensboro Chamber of Commerce 

NSF iCorps

Piedmont Triad Partnership
