University launches Think and Do the Extraordinary campaign

Think and do the extraordinary. The Campaign for NC State.NC State has embarked on a five-year, $1.6-billion fundraising campaign, calling on alumni and friends to help the University accomplish the extraordinary.

Think and Do the Extraordinary: The Campaign for NC State is the largest such effort in the University’s history.

This campaign is the vital next step for the College, as it continues an upward trajectory toward a stated goal of becoming the leading public college of engineering in the country and one of the premier colleges of engineering in the world.

The money raised will help the College fund scholarships for deserving students, attract more recognized faculty members through named professorships and enhance the programs that give our students a well-rounded experience.

A key component for the College is raising private money to help support construction of Engineering Building Oval, the future home of the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering; the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering; and the dean’s administration.

North Carolina voters approved $75 million in bond proceeds to help fund construction, and the College has pledged to raise $60 million in private donations.

Contact Griffin Lamb, assistant dean for development and college relations with the NC State Engineering Foundation, at or 919.515.7458, to learn how you can support the College.
