As N.C. State University's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences charts its future, it is looking for insight from the people of North Carolina. On Thursday, the college's dean, Dr. Richard Linton, will lead a listening session at the Lois G. Britt Agricultural Services Center in Kenansville. The public is invited.
The session is one of several being held throughout North Carolina in January and February to help inform a strategic planning process designed to guide the college into the future.
"The goal of these sessions is to identify the major trends, opportunities and challenges affecting North Carolina and how the college can best address these challenges, particularly in the areas of agriculture, life sciences, the environment and quality of life," Linton said. "Anyone with an interest in these areas is encouraged to attend."
The CALS strategic planning listening session will run from 8 to 10 a.m. at 165 Agriculture Drive.
