Extraordinary Difference: David Hill
On Dec. 31, 2021, NC State’s five-year Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign came to an incredibly successful close. Alumni, friends, employees and more helped propel the university well past its goal of $1.6 billion for a grand total of $2,103,932,120. These new funds will help drive NC State’s land-grant mission of creating economic, societal and intellectual prosperity for all, by both reaffirming its commitment to broad educational opportunity and powering its cutting-edge, hands-on innovation as North Carolina’s leading science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) university.
NC State professor and head of the College of Design’s School of Architecture David Hill ’98 ’02 is one of the many Pack members who have been benefited by this historic fundraising effort. Hill and his team at the Coastal Dynamics Design Lab help North Carolina’s coastal communities adapt to climate change by envisioning new ways for towns like Nags Head and Princeville to interact with their environments.
The Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign is helping.
“We’re not just putting ideas on the table — we want to see those ideas come to fruition,” Hill said. “As a land-grant institution, our mission is to serve the people of North Carolina. So, I feel like we do that every day.”
