Support Our Infrastructure

NC State is home to incredible places, from our main campuses in Raleigh to numerous other locations across the state. With your help, we can enhance and expand our buildings and other facilities to help future generations Think and Do like never before.

Buildings to Match Our Ambition

At NC State, our physical footprint is as bold as our determined spirit. Our university has emerged as a global model through transformative ideas and spaces such as Fitts-Woolard Hall, the Plant Sciences Building, our athletics facilities, the Gregg Museum of Art & Design and, of course, the Memorial Belltower at Henry Square.

Philanthropy ensures this physical environment can fully support the endeavors of NC State’s students, faculty and staff — those currently learning, growing and succeeding on campus as well as the many still to come.

Our College of Engineering, for instance, produces 2,300 top engineers and computer scientists annually. It has launched more than 40 startup companies in the last decade and conducted research leading to more than 220 consumer products. However, things change quickly in engineering. We can’t continue fueling the state’s high-skilled workforce without the cutting-edge areas needed to train talented scholars. Private support, including lead gifts for our new Fitts-Woolard Hall by its namesake alumni, Edward P. Fitts and Edgar S. Woolard, is helping us build and renovate the buildings we need to continue leading the way.

Here’s how you can help us continue accomplishing the extraordinary!

Fitts-Woolard Hall Achieves LEED Silver for Sustainability

Fitts-Woolard Hall, home to the College of Engineering, has earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification at the Silver level. Made possible in large part by private funding, Fitts-Woolard Hall brings the total amount of LEED-certified space on campus to more than 1.5 million square feet.

You can’t really attract, retain and develop the people, the outstanding students and the promising young faculty members … if you don’t have the best world-class infrastructure to support them.
