GREENSBORO, N.C. (June 27, 2018) – North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is among the nation’s best schools offering online programs for women studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics, according to the SR Education Group and its 2018 list of Best online Schools for Women in STEM.  Columbia University topped the list, which also featured such well-known names as Stanford, the University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins and Georgia Tech. 
N.C. A&T to Break Ground on Farm Pavilion, July 11   Dan Nonte

GREENSBORO, N.C. (June 28, 2018) – The College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at N.C. A&T will hold a groundbreaking at 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 11, for a $5 million pavilion at the University Farm, 3136 McConnell Road in Greensboro.
The CAES Extension and Farm Pavilion will expand the farm’s capacity for education, research and outreach. Funded by USDA’s National Institute for Food and Agriculture, the 17,000-square-foot structure  will include an auditorium, laboratories, a demonstration kitchen, a 50-person classroom and a 400-person conference room.    “The University Farm is ready for its renaissance with the start of the pavilion,’’ says Dr. Shirley Hymon-Parker, interim dean of the CAES.
    “We’ve never been dormant, but breaking ground for our new pavilion is the first phase of a four-part building boom taking place at the farm.  This growth will help us fulfill our mission to achieve excellence in the food, agricultural, family and environmental sciences.”

USDA-NIFA will provide financial support for three additional projects in the next four years. The subsequent projects are an amphitheater, student and community gardens, and a community and urban food complex with a dairy, research labs, classrooms and a small business incubator.   The University Farm was created in 1904 to provide food to the fledgling university’s cafeteria. The 492-acre farm is now the largest classroom on campus, a laboratory for agricultural research and a showcase of the latest farming resources and technology.

Continued development at the University Farm is in keeping with strategic goals of the university and the CAES to promote excellence in research, strengthen community engagement and outreach, and foster entrepreneurial success.

An interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University has launched a five-year project to make the production of advanced biofuels more efficient and affordable.  The NSF CREST Bioenergy Center’s goal
is to make biomass a more viable source of renewable energy by developing the basic science and technology that will make energy conversions more efficient and costs more affordable. The center is conducting fundamental research toward the development of advanced thermochemical biomass conversion technology to produce liquid transportation fuels and hydrogen.
 The expansion also portends economic and development benefits for the East Greensboro corridor where it is located.   One of the farm’s greatest advocates is its superintendent, Leon Moses, who started working at the farm when he was an undergraduate. “After spending 42 years of my life on this farm, I have seen it evolve,” Moses says. “It is an illustrious modern and model farm on a state and national level. My motto is ‘excellence is an effort and not an accident,’ so I firmly believe that the efforts to bring these new facilities to the farm have placed us on a sure path of excellence in agriculture.”
Institutions were chosen due to their support of women pursuing STEM degrees.

The top 15 were ranked based on the percentage of women STEM graduates, the number of online STEM degrees offered and the online support for women studying in those disciplines.   To be considered for this list, schools must offer at least five online STEM degrees at the bachelor’s level or higher. N.C. A&T offers seven – four undergraduate and three graduate.

“As a longtime national leader in STEM education, our university is increasingly focused on delivering that same quality of academic experience in online settings,” said Interim Vice Provost for Research, Graduate Programs and Extended Learning, and Dean of the Graduate College Clay Gloster. “It’s gratifying to be recognized as excelling in supporting women in STEM disciplines. Given the national needs for employees in STEM professions, we’re interested in doing even more going forward.”

In this ranking, STEM programs were defined using the National Center for Education Statistics criteria: agriculture and natural resources, architecture, biology and biomedical sciences, computer and information sciences, engineering and engineering technologies, health studies, mathematics and statistics, and physical and social sciences.”  A STEM-friendly score was calculated using a combination of factors, including female representation in student populations, the number of online STEM degrees offered and the extent of online resources and support for women students in STEM disciplines. The maximum score is 100. A&T’s score is 86.22.
