The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering will be a unique, interdisciplinary school, located at the South Campus of the Gateway University Research Park, the joint millennial campus of NCA&T and UNCG'...“It [JSNN] will be one of the most stimulating opportunities in the history of the area and will serve as a national model for collaboration between two institutions, one a historical black institution and the other a historical white female institution.” “The building would include the academic departments, laboratory facilities (teaching and research), and centers and institutes of the new School as well as selected centers and institutes currently located at the partner universities.

In addition to degree programs in nanoscience and nanengineering, JSNN will engage in research and outreach, as well as the expected roles of  a land-grant institution, such as teaching agriculture and engineering, and providing cooperative extension services.  The JSNN facilities will be located on land that was formerly part of the NCA&T farm.

 

 Rewinding to 1991-92, at bequest of UNC Board of Governors NC Legislature enacted NC GA § 116‑252.

Nanotechnology is Experimental
NCA&T State University has been funded at an average rate of $3-5 million per year in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Most of the research in nanoengineering is done in the Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures (CAMSS). Several Centers and projects are under CAMSS, including the NSF Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST), the DoD Center for Nanoscience, Nanomaterials and Multifunctional Materials (CNN) for Homeland Security, the NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC), the NSF project on US/Europe Materials Collaboration: Self-Organized Nanostructured Thin Films for Catalysis, the NSF project on Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT), the NSF Major Research Instrumentation for Nanoengineering Research, and the NSF Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) program. CAMSS also facilitates many of the materials research activities of the NASA-National Institute for Aerospace (NIA). In addition, the Center for Composite Materials Research (CCMR) does research in nano-enhanced composite materials and the Army Center of Excellence for Battlefield Capability Enhancements (Flexible Displays) does research in material characterization and development of novel displays.

“Activities/Resources: Leverage faculty collaboration at JSNN to enhance research partnerships between UNCG and NCA&T researchers.  Expected Result, UNCG opportunities in grants previously unavailable due to limitations in areas of certain research expertise. “

NCA&T was 4th in Funding in Nanotechnology Research at North Carolina Universities with $11 Million Dollars between 2000-2005. UNC at Greensboro 10th among the 11 institutions conducted $45,000 dollars of Nanotechnology research between 2000 thru 2005.

 
" I am so energized by the potential of this research park, in particular the joint schools of nano technology and nano science. The world is seeing explosive growth today in the commercialization of nanotechnology. We will have all of the assets right here in Guilford County that we need to participate in that explosion, and they will be right here at the Gateway University Research Park." said Erskine  president of the University of North Carolina system .
 

UNC BOG Committee on Budget and Finance, April 2006, approved recommending 1.3 million dollars for planning a Biotechnology Building at NCA&T to full BOG.  Proposed facility would enable NCA&T to support ongoing and expanding research activities in bioengineering, biotechnology, and biomedicine.  NC A&T' biotechnology program is interdisciplinary and will incorporate research activities currently housed in the College of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, and School of Agriculture and Environment Sciences The Total cost of this project is $25 Million dollars.

NCGS § 116-198.34. (8b) says in part “The designation should be based on the express finding that the institution has the administrative and fiscal capacity to create and maintain such a campus, and provided further, that the Board of Governors has found that the creation of the constituent institution's "Millennial Campus" will enhance the institution's research, teaching, and service missions as well as enhance the economic development of the region.” A&T is known for its engineering and agricultural programs and UNCG’s background is nursing and the humanities “.[Its [UNCG] historically strong programs in music, education and nursing are not the kinds of programs that spin off research and development or software companies to fuel high tech economies [Ken Mayer, Editorial, UNCG, A&T University will need to be leaders in the charge for high-tech industry in the Triad, Triad Business Journal Nov 9, 1998] ( Ken Mayer is former Chairman UNCG BOT 2003-2004 & 2004-2005.]  NCA&T and cross-town UNC- G have different research, teaching, and service missions.
