Seeking Global Strategic Partners: Travels to Uganda

NC State seeks out strategic partners around the globe. That quest took Dean Jeff Braden to Uganda recently, where he led a university delegation to explore the potential for partnerships between Makarere University, the Kingdom of Buganda, The Aids Support Organization (TASO), and the Maamma Watali Project. His goal was to assess the resources, capabilities and needs there in order to advise NC State's Office of International Affairs on whether or how to proceed in developing these international partnerships.

Alums Get in the Game (Shows)

Our alumni get in the game. Literally, in some cases. Tensie Taylor ('09 Communication) appears on Wheel of Fortune this week; Josh Hager pulled in prize money as a contestant on Jeopardy last week. Who's next?


Alums Create "Harbinger"

NC State alumni Kieran Moreira (Film Studies) and Andrew Martin (Textile Engineering) bring their new independent film to the Hunt Library. HARBINGER is a live-action, fantasy-drama, seen through a child’s perspective that showcases Raleigh and North Carolina as a premier filmmaking location. The story follows Harold, an adopted ten-year-old boy, who climbs to the top of an oak tree in hopes of catching his unborn baby brother falling from space. Martin and Moreira will be on hand for a post-film discussion. Run time is approximately 30 minutes.

And conducting important research is not reserved for faculty and graduate students; we encourage undergrads to conduct research, too. Check out this video -- made by students in Advanced Digital Video -- to learn about three such undergraduate research projects.
