North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has become the 36th and only North Carolina member of the Leadership Alliance, the premiere coalition of the nation’s top research and teaching institutions committed to diversifying the higher education pipeline into positions in academia, the public and private sectors.

“North Carolina A&T has a legacy of accessibility and a commitment to diversity,” said Dr. Barry Burks, Vice Chancellor of Research and Economic Development. “Our faculty members hail from many countries, representing nearly every continent – and our student body is also a rich tapestry of diversity even though our enrollment is more than 80 percent African American. A&T is proud to join with other members of The Leadership Alliance to address the continuing shortage of graduate students, Ph.D. candidates and tenure-track faculty of under-represented groups in academia.”
