The causes and impacts of society’s biggest challenges touch many subject areas. So do the solutions to these problems. That’s why we created the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, a collection of 20 interdisciplinary clusters that foster collaboration among faculty researchers at NC State.

In the search for solutions, we’re doing more than bringing diverse groups of researchers together. We’re also building an infrastructure that supports their work. Some pieces of that infrastructure, such as changing promotion and tenure processes to encourage interdisciplinary work, are done behind the scenes. Others are easy to see, like our investment in library support for each faculty cluster.

All our efforts aim to give cluster faculty the tools they need to find innovative, applicable solutions to grand challenges.

Join the Search for Solutions

Our 20 faculty clusters will bring more than 70 new faculty members to NC State. Many of the clusters have completed their hiring, but several positions remain open.

Explore our current tenured and tenure-track openings to see how you can be part of our search for solutions to the grand challenges:
