Conducting Defining Research: A Defining Experience for Undergrads

Creating new knowledge. It's one of the big benefits of studying at a research-intensive university like NC State.

Professor Emeritus David Greene is a prolific scholar and author, a gifted and giving musician, a highly skilled and sensitive translator, and a dedicated and cherished volunteer. In his retirement, Greene works to improve the lives of those around him: the children and villagers of eastern Guatemala, where Greene lives, teaches and writes for two thirds out of each year. For his work there, NC State’s Association of Retired Faculty recently recognized Greene with the Friday Award for Distinguished Service in Retirement.
