Screenshot of Faculty Central Website HomepageWebsite Focuses on Faculty

NC State offers a wealth of resources for faculty in each stage of their career. The spread out nature of faculty resources led to the recent creation of the Faculty Central website, a one-stop shop for information and tools distributed across the vast ecosystem of NC State websites. Faculty Central was developed in partnership with university faculty, Research and Innovation, Human Resources, the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, the Office of Faculty Development and University Communications and Marketing. The Office of Institutional Research and Planning assisted in collecting data most commonly requested by faculty and determining how to best structure this information.
