Preparing Future Leaders: NCA&T and UNCG Partnership for Graduate Student Professional Development

The Graduate Schools of UNCG and N.C. A&T, in partnership, have established the Preparing Future Leaders (PFL) program as a strong foundation for graduate student professional development and career preparation. The program is designed to provide valuable, transferable skills and knowledge that will prepare currently enrolled, degree seeking graduate students to be successful and dynamic leaders in their chosen disciplines and careers as they complete their degree.

NSF Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP-NC Project)

North Carolina State University, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, are collaborating to develop, implement and study the AGEP North Carolina Alliance model for creating institutional, department-level and faculty change to promote historically underrepresented minority US citizens who are completing their STEM doctoral degrees and progressing into faculty positions.  The AGEP-NC Student Leadership Council (SLC) provides doctoral students an opportunity to contribute to the success of the effort while gaining valuable leadership and STEM education research experience. The SLC consists of two doctoral students from NC A&T (along with students from NC State University and UNC-Charlotte) who serve a one-year term and provide input to the AGEP-NC Project Senior Leadership on the needs of students in their disciplines and campuses.
