In 2003-04, with the backbone of North Carolina's industrial economy Tobacco, Textiles, and Furniture in recession and appropriations for UNC-System taking an ever increasing multi-billion dollar bite out of state's coffers, North Carolina's Legislature thru House Bill 1264 (HB 1264) direct UNC-BOG to contract a private consulting firm that had experience in higher education to conduct a comprehensive study (HB 1264 Study) of the mission and educational program needs to ensure that the State's citizens are academically prepared and equipped for current job opportunities and jobs of the future in North Carolina's growing knowledge economy. HB 1264 Study was designed to provide information and recommendations that would assist the General Assembly in setting priorities for funding to address the strategic higher education needs of the State. Staying a step ahead stated North Carolina A&T State University is well positioned to grow programs in some of the areas identified as emerging industries, citing Objective 2.2: Increase access to University intellectual property and resources (faculty, students, research.

It is predicted that nano scale science will change the nature of almost every human-made product this century. This field has great potential applications in materials, medicine, electronics, optics, data storage, advanced manufacturing, environment, energy, and national security. Some specific applications include: lightweight new materials with greatly improved strength and wear characteristics; ultra dense computer memory; better drug design and better drug and gene delivery; sensing applications for agricultural, biological, chemical and homeland security applications; improved catalysts for the chemical and automotive industries; new materials to improve fuel economy and carbon dioxide emissions; and improved batteries and energy efficient processes for energy technologies. Nanoscale materials already find use in numerous pharmaceutical, catalytic, electronic, magnetic, optoelectronic, biomedical, cosmetic and energy applications. [ 9]
 
North Carolina Agricultural And Technical State University is Global
NC A&T is "well known in areas such as advanced materials, nanotechnology, computational science,  and says N.  Radhakrishnan, former  for research and economic development at N.C. A&T. The school also has significant strengths in other areas, including biotechnology, energy and the environment,  information sciences and technology, logistics and transportation  development.  All  these  endeavors are aligned in eight  research clusters that bring faculty together across disciplines to develop large research projects. 
These research clusters run in parallel with a number  of multidisciplinary centers and institutes   
at N.C. A&T, which develop partnerships  with private and corporate sponsors, educational institutions, and government agencies.  [2]

Millennial Campuses Financing Act. NCGS § 116-198.31 dictates no pledge of taxes or the faith and credit of the State or any agency or political subdivision thereof, to pay the cost, in whole or part, of buildings, structures, or other facilities on a Millennial Campus.
  • "The sources of funds used to repay the $10 million authorized in 2004 for the Joint Millennial Campus were the Health and Wellness Trust Fund (HWTF) and the Tobacco Trust Fund (TTF).
  • The session law (SL 2004-179) that authorized the use of debt for the JMC also required the HWTF and TTF to pay the debt service on this project as well as nine other health and education projects and up to five and youth development facilities. Although these two trust funds have been abolished, the same source of funds (Master Settlement Agreement- MSA) that used to support them is still being used for debt service.
  • The State’s General Fund is being used to repay the debt service on the Joint Graduate School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering Building. For more information, you can look up the bill that created this funding on the General Assembly’s website at www.ncleg.net"  Office of the Governor
