Why We Chose CALS

We are proud of our land-grant mission, and even more proud of our acclaimed faculty and staff. With the support of our partners, stakeholders and NC State administration, we are investing in our future faculty positions like never before.

We’re hiring 78 faculty in roughly 24 months, and are launching new initiatives to accelerate our state’s number one economy – agriculture.

There are a lot of reasons to come Think and Do at NC State. Below are a few video stories from recent hires that highlight why they chose CALS.
