A Tradition of Environmental Excellence
NC State's commitment to both the theoretical and practical principles supporting sound environmental policies is more than a century old. Ever since our founding in 1887 as a land-grant institution devoted to agricultural progress, we have led the way in advocating the responsible use of North Carolina's forests, farms, oceans, rivers, mountains, and atmosphere. Today, our reputation has grown as the nation and world have come to recognize the importance of protecting our planet's resources. NC State faculty members are now engaged in global environmental research, teaching and outreach activities and they frequently participate in national and international meetings centered on environmental issues. In addition, NC students study environmental topics all around the world, while faculty members and students from over 85 countries visit NC State each year, many of them to learn more about the environment.
