North Carolina, like other Southern states, relied on slavery to build its economy during the 18th and 19th centuries. Slaves across the state raised crops, did domestic chores, constructed new buildings, sailed ships, and performed countless other jobs, all for no pay."   The Story of  Slavery in North Carolina
Notwithstanding the Story of Slavery in North Carolina members of the white majority have always opposed those who benefited from the dehumanizing conditions of black slavery.
 
“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.”
 
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.
 
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
 
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."
 
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 and UNCG next to last with $44,999 between 2000-2005.

In 2003 A&T, NATO Sponsor Material Symposium in Ukraine.
 
 
" 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 .
 
Subject of a policy discussion Nov. 2006, UNC Board of Governors 2007-2009 Budget Priorities November 10, 2006 called for Pending Board of Governors approval, funding for the creation of a joint Graduate School of Nanoscience  and Nanoengineering at NCA&T  and UNC-G's Millennium Campus. 
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.
