HBCU  institution North Carolina A&T, one of the state's two land grant institutions, has programs through the doctoral level. Its programs include engineering, arts and sciences, agricultural and environmental sciences, business and economics, education, nursing, technology, and graduates studies.  “ The expected roles of a land-grant institution, is teaching agriculture and engineering, and providing cooperative extension services”.  NC A&T's 2001 amend University Master Plan called for developing 75 acres  of land along East Lee Street targeted to develop new opportunities for both research and education in both the private and academic arenas between the University's technology and agricultural research and its students, which didn't include across-town historical white UNC Greensboro and its members of the Greensboro business community.
 
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.
 
Negotiation began in 2002 and September 2004 NC A&T State University celebrated the sighing of Memorandum of Understanding  with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) with the opening of the National Resources Conservation Services Eastern Regional Technology Center whose service area consisted of 24 states and the Caribbean area. The Greensboro Center was also home to the remote sensing lab.  The Memorandum of Understanding says A&T has a working farm with modern facilities and farm equipment. NRCS will benefit from the use of this farm by  being able to provide hands-on training to NRCS employees. NRCS can sponsor field studies that can serve as demonstrations to both NRCS trainees and also local and regional farmers. A&T constituents will also benefit from this type of applied investigation. Finally, A&T faculty and students can also benefit academically by conducting scholarly research and publishing this information.
 
In 2003-04, with the backbone of North Carolina's industrial economy Tobacco, Textiles, and Furniture outsourced, in decline/recession or outsourced with appropriations for UNC-System taking an ever increasing multi-billion dollar bite out of state's coffers, North Carolina's Legislature thru House Bill 1264 (HB 1264) direct UNC-BOG and COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM  to contract a private consulting firm that had experience in  higher education to conduct a comprehensive study (Staying a step  ahead) of the mission and educational program needs to ensure that the State's citizens are academically prepared and equipped for current job opportunities and jobs of the future in North Carolina's growing knowledge economy.
 


Emerging from a legislative mandated study HB 1264
,Staying a Step Ahead,  to ensure  the State's citizens are academically prepared and equipped for current job opportunities and jobs of the future in North Carolina's  growing knowledge economy, explicitly referred to research clusters created by HBCU NCA&T
 
HB 1264 (6),  says with regard to the University System, there shall be special emphasis on the development of signature programs for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the University of North Carolina at Pembroke
 
Nanotechnology, Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, should have been HBCU NCA&T Signature Programs
 
“Signature programs” have been defined as those that are distinctive, that build on existing strengths, that advance the institution’s profile, and that serve regional and/or state economic transformation needs."
 
It  is predicted that nano scale science will change the nature of almost every human-made product this century. This field has great potential applications in materials, medicine, electronics, optics, data storage, advanced manufacturing, environment, energy, and national security. Some specific applications include: lightweight new materials with greatly improved strength and wear characteristics; ultra dense computer memory; better drug design and better drug and gene delivery; sensing applications for agricultural, biological, chemical and homeland security applications; improved catalysts for the chemical and automotive industries; new materials to improve fuel economy and carbon dioxide emissions; and improved batteries and energy efficient processes for energy technologies. Nanoscale materials already find use in numerous pharmaceutical, catalytic, electronic, magnetic, optoelectronic, biomedical, cosmetic and energy applications.
 
NC A&T is "well known in areas such as advanced materials, nanotechnology,, computational science, and says N. Radhakrishnan, former VP for research and economic development at N.C. A&T. The school also has significant strengths in other areas, including biotechnology, energy and the environment, information sciences and technology, logistics and transportation development. 
All these endeavors are aligned in eight research  clusters that bring faculty together across disciplines to develop large research projects. These research clusters run in parallel with a number of multidisciplinary centers and institutes at N.C. A&T,  which develop partnerships with private and corporate sponsors, educational institutions, and government agencies.
 
  • "NCA&T has 12-years of experience in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology”

  • “Expertise in nanotechnology may become a prerequisite for many scientists and engineers that support a wide variety of industries, nano expertise among the North Carolina science and engineering workforce may soon become a competitive advantage issue for the state.

  • The global market for nanotechnology products and services is predicted to increase by 18-28 percent annually for the next several years (BCC Research, Inc.) and is expected to reach $2.6 trillion by 2014 (Lux Research), showing the potential for strong growth in this sector of the economy

 
Historical Black Land Grant NCA&T was listed as University focus on Nanotechnology in 2005.
Cross town Historical White UNC Greensboro was not listed as a University focused on Nanotechnology.
 
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.
 

NCA&T was 4th 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. In 2003 A&T, NATO Sponsor Material Symposium in Ukraine.

September 2004 NC A&T State University celebrated the sighing of Memorandum of Understanding  with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) with the opening of the National Resources Conservation Services Eastern Regional Technology Center whose service area consisted of 24 states and the Caribbean area. The Greensboro Center was also home to the remote sensing lab.  The Memorandum of Understanding says A&T has a working farm with modern facilities and farm equipment. NRCS will benefit from the use of this farm by  being able to provide hands-on training to NRCS employees. NRCS can sponsor field studies that can serve as demonstrations to both NRCS trainees and also local and regional farmers. A&T constituents will also benefit from this type of applied investigation. Finally, A&T faculty and students can also benefit academically by conducting scholarly research and publishing this information.

Re: U.S. Department of Agriculture, natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Lease Project, Greensboro , NC
This correspondence correspondence to your June 30, 2006 inquiry concerning the status of this project as a firm action that will move forward. As I have advised on   numerous occasions and want to reiterate, this particular project is an endeavor which was approved by the U.S. General Services Administration as a sole-source" procurement based upon the unique requirements provided by the NRCS...As such, we have been working and are committed to diligently pursing satisfaction of NRCS need for space to be located on the campus of North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University through a negotiated lease procurement
 
August 14, 2006 Terrance Feravich email to Joe Henderson, John Webb,  CC Robert Nelson; John Merrill: I was hoping that we might have an opportunity to sit and walk through any hurdles that you see in proposed lease between NCA&T/UNCG joint Millennial Campus and GCID.   Talking with John of Friday.  I've learned that he has gained a significant commitment from the USDA for up to a 50,000 sq. ft. new building.  While they understand that we are working hard at getting things properly set-up for all parties and are being patient, my sense is that it would be in the best interest of this new venture to get that first client off to a healthy and timely start.  I'll be in Raleigh Wednesday for a couple of meetings ... and would welcome the opportunity to work the issues that you are see in the lease.  I know that John Merrill is also pretty flexible this week is well.  Sorry to be a bit of a pest with this important issue and I appreciate your understanding.  

 Joseph Henderson email wrote: Terry We can deal with the new building under our existing procedures. Let's not let the proposed lease get in the way of that.

The UNC Policy Manual 400.1.1.1[G]


A degree program is a program of study in a discipline specialty that leads to a degree in that distinct specialty area at a particular level of instruction.   As a general rule, in order to be considered for degree program status, a course of study should require at least 27 semester hours in the proposed program area at the undergraduate level; at least half the number of hours required for the degree at the master’s level; and at least 21 hours in the proposed program area at the doctoral level. [Adopted 05/06/09]
 
Notwithstanding  the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES), categorized Nanoscience as CIP 15.1601 Engineering Technologies and Engineering-Related Fields.  UNC General Administration applied  CIP 40.9999 (Physical Science) to UNCG academic offering . Note UNC-G has a School of  Arts and Science.
 Note: Fall 2005 UNC Presidency transition from President Molly Broad  to Erskine Bowles.
 
Professional Master of Science in Nanoscience
The 33-hour, non-thesis MS in nanoscience follows the Professional Master of Science degree model, featuring course work in nanosciences and business and an internship to provide practical experience.
 
UNC General Administration applied  CIP 40.9999 (Physical Science) to UNCG academic offering determined UNC at Greensboro offered only a Master in Chemistry on the graduate level in the category of Physical Science.
 
Doctor of Philosophy in Nanoscience
The PhD in Nanoscience requires a minimum of 60 hours and is designed to prepare students to take positions in industrial, governmental, or academic research settings by providing a solid background in Nanoscience theory and experimental techniques through course work and dissertation research.
 
 
”The addition of a doctoral program is not an easy or simple extension of the master’s program. Unlike most master’s programs, a doctoral program is research-based. While doctoral program requirements routinely include additional course work, the central program requirement is the dissertation. The topic for the dissertation normally derives from discussion with faculty who are engaged in research and therefore knowledgeable about the “frontier of knowledge” in the discipline. For a faculty member to then properly guide and assist the student’s dissertation research, that faculty member must be an active researcher. Hence, the implementation of a doctoral program must be preceded by the assembling of faculty who are conducting publishable research in that discipline.

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.  NCA&T was 4th 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.
 
UNC General Administration categorizing Nanoscience Ph.D. as a Physical Science; examining UNC Greensboro curricula for similar Physical Science Ph.D.  programs determined UNCG offer no similar Ph.D. programs.
 
Offering Nanoscience degrees constituted a Substantial Change from previous approved programs as defined by SACS for Liberal  Arts UNC-G. (UNCG) Rebecca Adams to (SACS) Tom Benberg : Sarah Armstrong [SACS] Subject: Request for interpretation of accuracy of Nanoscience message, April 13, 2010: This request will be for approval to initiate a new off-campus site (South Campus) and to initiate a new degree program (MS in Nanoscience) at that site. Contrary to previous interpretations, both represent substantive changes for us.
 

 UNC Board of Governors January 2007 authorized UNC Charlotte, which has an Engineering School, to offer a Ph.D. in Nanoscale Science.  Offering Nanoscale Science was not a Substantial Change as defined by the SACS for UNC Charlotte.  Nov. 2012 UNC Board of Governors authorized a Master’s in Nanoengineering to Land Grant Institution NC State, which has an Engineering
 


School.  Offering a MS in Nanoengineering was not a Substantial Change as defined by the SACS for NC State. 
 
 Historical black North Carolina A&T, as one of the state's two land grant institutions, has programs through the doctoral level. Its programs include engineering, arts and sciences, agricultural and environmental sciences, business and economics, education, nursing, technology, and graduates studies. “The expected roles of a land-grant institution, is teaching agriculture and engineering, and providing cooperative extension services” .  Consistent with other engineering schools in the UNC System offering Nanoscience and Nanoengineering programs  are not  Substantial Changes as defined by the SACS and  consistent with the education, curricular, mission and goals of NC A&T State University.

 



 
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.
UNC Board of Governors 2007-09 budget Priorities bogus claim the Greensboro Center for Innovative Development- renamed  Gateway University Research Park- as NCAT/UNC-G Joint Millennial Campus relocated NCA&T College of Engineering, School of Technology, Physical Sciences and Applied Sciences programs and research, off –campus to the bogus Joint Millennial (with UNCG) doubling the cost $25 million vs. $50 million.
