Stealing A&T Praise: “The Joint School for Nanoscience and Nanoengineering….. built on the major nano-technology research activity that had been established at nearby Wake Forest and at NCA&T”; Nanotechnology should have been NC A&T Signature program  Michael J. Pippen
 
At bequest of UNC Board of Governors NC Legislature enacted NC GA § 116‑252. Piedmont Triad Graduate Engineering Program in support faculty and graduate students involved in engineering at the campuses of The University of North Carolina.  In doing so UNC Board of Governors rejected a $20 Million dollar NCA&T/UNC-G Engineering and Science Research Center; "but that center [Piedmont Triad Engineering  Research Center] contains no role for UNCG, which had hoped to get several doctoral level programs out of a joint engineering and science research center with A&T"; "UNCG/A&T proposal had won the enthusiastic  endorsement of top Greensboro business leaders.  Acting through the Greensboro Development Corp., they last year commissioned a $300,000 study  to determine
what areas of research  at UNCG/A&T  center could engage in to the benefit of the Triad economy and its  industries"; and I'm [banker E.S. ``Jim'' Melvin, chairman of the Greensboro Development Corp convinced it  [Research Center] is the thing to do, but we've got to work through the university system, build the case for it and get it high on the board's priority list. That's going to take some time.'' reported Jack Scism[1] 
 
“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. Emphasis added [2]
 
 
Historical black 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, which didn't include across town historical white UNC Greensboro and members of the Greensboro business community.
 
Nanotechnology, Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, should have been HBCU NCA&T Signature Programs
 
In 2003-04, with the backbone of North Carolina's industrial economy Tobacco, Textiles, and Furniture in recession and 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 Board of Governors 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.
 
HB 1264 (6),  states 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.
 
“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."
 
  • “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
 

"NCA&T has 12-years of experience in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology”

 
NC A&T is "well known in areas such as advanced materials, nanotechnology,, computational science, and says N. Radhakrishnan, former VP for research andeconomic 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.
 
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
 
 
HB 1264(7)(2003-04)  the Legislature mandated the Board of Governors emphasized existing and new programs at Liberal Arts  Universities specifically aimed at meeting business, industry, workforce, and career needs of North Carolina in the State's changing and growing knowledge-based economy, taking into account, as appropriate, State and regional economic strategies.
 
“ 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.".
 
UNC Greensboro, the former Historical white Woman’s College of the UNC system, has a strong tradition in the Liberal Arts.  With the source of enrollment growth being minorities as white enrollment leveled off across the University of North Carolina,   Guilford

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro 2003-2004 Profile

Technical Community College experiencing record enrollment, ECPI University, and ITT Tech offering addition  technology based education in the Triad education market place.

What’s left on the plate for HWI Liberal Arts UNCG with a potential national and regional prominent HBCU NCA&T across town?    Would the political astute business organization affiliate with UNC Greensboro use political connections to reposition HWI UNCG in and HBCU NCA&T out? UNC at Greensboro formulated a 2003-08 academic plan to establish a joint millennial campus with NCA&T.


 
A Millennial Campus is Real Property designated by UNC Board of Governors pursuant NCGS116-198.34 (8b) which says in part: Upon formal request by the constituent institutions, the Board of Governors may authorize two or more constituent institutions which meets the requirements of this section to create a joint Millennial Campus. § 116-198.34. General Powers of Board of Governors.
 
Notwithstanding NCA&T's 2001 Master Plan update calling for establishing a university Millennial Campus at the farm, credited in the media as the work of UNC-G district NC Senator Kay Hagan, June 30, 2003, the General Assembly, Session Law 2003-294, Section 6.20, reallocated former Central School of the Deaf to UNC BOG to be used for the establishment of Millennium campuses of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.   UNC Board of  Governors committee Committee on Budget and Finance approved recommending Session law to the full board of Governors  July 2003.
 
``I think for the next 50 years, A&T and the engineering programs and science programs are going to be an integral part and a driving force in the economic development of the community,'' said Greensboro attorney Jim Phillips Jr., a member of the UNC Board of Governors."
 
Speaking Speaking before before Board of Governors, Committee on Budget and Finance Chair Lobbyist Greensboro Attorney Jim W. Phillips, Jr. , " reported "that the Boards of Trustees at North Carolina A&T State University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro requested that the land formerly designated for the Central School for the Deaf and allocated to the Board of Governors by the 2003 Session of the General Assembly and a 75- acre parcel of land currently comprising a portion of the North Carolina A&T State University Farm be designated as a joint millennial campus", allegedly approved Oct. 10, 2003.
 
Request for Proposals by Gateway University Research Park for Construction The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering- dated Sept. 1, 2004
The National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) responsible for collecting and presenting statistical data and information for the nation; classifies Nanoscience and Nanoengineering as Nanotechnology  CIP 15.1601: Engineering technologies and Engineering related fields.
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.
 
The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering Short Description of Project:
The facility will be a complex laboratory building which will include an auditorium, classrooms, laboratories, clean rooms, high purity water systems; complex energy, HVAC, and support systems to facilitate the research and study of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering.
Project Overview: The JSNN will support established research programs with faculty from the two universities and will have its own faculty lines as well. The primary goal of the school is to be a world leader in research, nano-related education, and outreach. The JSNN will promote Research goals, Education goals, and Outreach goals. To meet these goals, the JSNN will require specialized, state-of-the-art industrial quality research space. These will include laboratories for life sciences, engineering, materials science and other spaces requiring tightly controlled environments.  
 
Educational and Skills Requirements Nanotechnology refers to a set of platform technologies that involve the assembly or manipulation of objects at a very small scale. Almost all of the occupations which will be affected by nanotechnology will require a BS in engineering with a broad, interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approach. Nanotechnology will require an understanding not only of electrical, mechanical and civil engineering but biology, physics, and chemistry as well. 
 
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”.
 
“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. “
 
To offer Nanoscience degrees UNCG requires access to NCA&T academic programs and research:

“Although the degree is in Nanoscience (does not include Nanoengineering), students will be given the opportunity to take relevant courses at the School of Engineering at North Carolina A&T University and will be able to work on collaborative projects with faculty in the School of Engineering”.

 
“In addition to degree programs in Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, 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.[1]”


The constituent university where the Project will be constructed:


Gateway University Research Park, South Campus
2900 East Lee Street Greensboro, NC 27401


Unambiguous the intent  is script in UNC-Greensboro,  divest  NCA&T of it Nanoscience assets, etc.,  creating  a  new constituent institution Gateway University Research Park, physically located at (NC A&T Farm) 2900 East Lee Street Greensboro, NC 27401

General Powers of Board of Governors.
 
Turning to the Universities, Public Record Reply from UNC-Greensboro for statutory required request to establish a Joint Millennial Campus produced alleged Chancellors signed Document dated Aug. 22nd, 2003.  Alleged Chancellors signed document stated: "we are pleased to inform you that this proposal has been approved by both of our Boards of Trustees and is supported by local community leaders and organizations including Action Greensboro.  Note Action Greensboro only member is  Greensboro Chamber of commerce.
 
NCA&T Board of Trustee Executive Session Minutes dated February 19, 2003,  say, NC A&T Chancellor Renick stated that he wanted to make the Board aware of a potential real estate opportunity based on a collaborative arrangement with UNC-Greensboro regarding the North Carolina School for the Deaf- a property that has been vacated. The Chancellor indicated that a proposal has been submitted to the Department of Administration to craft a partnership between the two universities.
 
Recommended by Chancellors  Renick and Sullivan, NC A&T and UNC-G Board of Trustees duplicate Resolutions: In Support of The Creation of a Joint Millennial Campus between NC A&T and UNCG, dated Aug. 22, 2003,  and Aug. 28, 2003 ,   calling  for seeking designation of Joint Millennial Campus in terms of the Central North Carolina School of the Deaf  real estate, transferred to UNC Board of Governors for the purpose of establishing a Joint Millennial Campus.   And,  whereas the nonprofit corporation to be created for management of the Joint Millennial Campus will be the entity designated to accept transfer of the North Carolina School for the Deaf from the UNC Board of Governors. Universities' resolution seeking designation of Joint Millennial was without a syllable pertaining to  a 75-acre parcel of NCA&T farmland, statutory foreclosed Phillips  alleged NCA&T/UNCG Joint Millennial Campus.  

Note: NCA&T Resolution dated Aug. 22, 2003 signed Gerald Truesdale, Vice Chair and Velma Speight-Buford, Secretary maybe bogus.

 
Clearly, alleged universities resolutions didn't constitute  statutory NC G. S.: 116-198.34. (8b) required formal Request to Establish a Joint Millennial Campus inclusive of 75- acres of NCA&T farmland.
 
 

Lease was smoking Gun NCA&T/UNC-G Joint Millennial Campus wasn’t designated

 
Notwithstanding the Millennial Campus Statue does not provide for the General Administration to create an NC G. S.: 116-198.34. (8b) Joint Millennial Campus and UNC Policy Manual 600.1.3 limits the President to acquisition of $25,000 of less without Board of Governors approval.

Subject: GCID Lease Joe and John;

I was hoping that we might have an opportunity to sit and walk through any hurdles that you see in propose lease between NCA&T/UNC-G joint millennial campus and GCID.

Talking with John on Friday I've learned that he has gained a significant commitment from the USDA for up to 50, 000 square-foot 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 in that it would be in the best interest of this new venture to get that first client off to a healthy and timely start.  Showing steady progress towards getting them settled would really aid their confidence in us.  Sorry to be a bit of a pest with this important issue and I appreciate your understanding.  Terrance C.
