NC State Project Promotes STEM Education at Dillard Drive Elementary

NC State professor Bethany Cutts recently led her students from the NR 203: Humans and Environment course in mentoring more than 100 second graders in learning about pollination, plants and ecosystems, and garden planting and maintenance. Funded through a grant from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion that was made possible by annual donors to the College of Natural Resources and from challenges won by the college on Day of Giving, the project aimed to provide Cutts’ students with an opportunity to interact with and mentor a diverse community partner and to provide opportunities for elementary students who do not typically have access to STEM programs.

Thanks to committed supporters, NC State’s fourth annual Day of Giving was once again a success for the College of Engineering and the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering (CCEE). The college raised more than $1.5 million from 1,444 gifts on March 23, with CCEE topping the College of Engineering Leaderboard in part because of $19,700 from the CCEE Advisory Board for completing a match challenge of 100 gifts.

Thank You, Libraries Donors!

The NC State University Libraries is focused on supporting student success and making education more affordable for the Wolfpack. Donors responded to that mission with 235 gifts to the Libraries on the 2022 Day of Giving — including the university’s most distant donation from Karrinyup, Australia. Since the Libraries serves every student at NC State regardless of their college or department, these gifts add up to a universitywide triumph.
