North Carolina A&T State University, the historically Black educational institution in Greensboro, has announced a major academic reorganization. According to the university, “the reorganization will position North Carolina A&T to award degrees that support careers of the future and increase its competitiveness in the global marketplace.”
The goals of the new plan are to increase undergraduate and graduate enrollment, make the university more attractive to external funding, promote faculty research and scholarly activity, and to improve the university’s national and international rankings.
As part of the plan, the university has reorganized its academic programs into the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Health Sciences, the College of Science and Technology and the College of Education. Earlier this month, JBHE reported on the leaders who were selected to head these new academic units.
