North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics
The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM), North Carolina State University, on behalf of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on March 20, 2009, outlining the Creating Awareness of Agriculture and Life Sciences Disciplines, Degree Programs and Discoveries Project, also known as CAALS 3-D. Led by the CALS Diversity Council, the project is designed to increase awareness and interest in career fields within the food, agricultural and life sciences among male NCSSM students from underrepresented groups and engage them in research. On April 19, 2017 the CALS Diversity Council agreed to expand the reach of this opportunity to high school students who would not otherwise obtain exposure to agriculture and life sciences disciplines.
