CREATOR: Throw in with the Devil get thrown in with the Devil   Angels Gathered Here

“The world is seeing explosive growth today in the commercialization of nanotechnology.  We will have all of the assets right here in Guilford County that we need to participate in that explosion, and  they will be right here at the Gateway University Research Park." said Erskine Bowles, president of the University of North Carolina system .  [1] 
 " The joint school will build on the nanotechnology research activity established at nearby Wake Forest and at NCA&T. [2]

      In 2011 HMI North Carolina A&T, largest producers of minority engineers  and technologists in the country,  holds patents in  Advanced Materials, Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Computational Science, Environmental Sciences,  Transportation Systems, and Public Health,  for  seventh consecutive year achieved  the third highest  research funding in the 16-member University of North Carolina  System with  over  $50 million dollars.  “Federal grants make up the bulk of A&T's research funding."[30].    Orchestrating commercialization of  federal research the  manner and means assets at NC A&T came to be located at alleged joint Millennial Campus Gateway Research Park and who benefitted is subject of this Statement of the Case  [A&T lands prized NSF center] "With the millions of federal dollars flowing to this center, what we can do to increase the economic opportunities in Guilford County, the Triad and in the state of  North Carolina is truly phenomenal," said Erskine Bowles , president of the UNC system. [A&T lands prized NSF center][31].  Local media reported " Wilbur L. Ross Jr., a billionaire financier and the country's newest textile industry baron, plans to invest more money in nanotechnology companies. "  The Mission Statement of  The University of North Carolina  unambiguous is teaching, learning, and research in the most cost effective  manner - not commercialization. 

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology was NC A&T Signature Program

In 2004, 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. 
HB 1264(6) recognized the Historic significance of  Historical Minority   Institutions (HMI), ordered the University to formulate signature programs at them and not to diminish their role.  The study stated " “Signature programs” have been defined as those that are distinctive, that build on existing  strengths, that  advance the institution’s  profile, and that serve regional and/or state economic transformation  needs." Study identified as an emerging area Advanced Materials -- Nanotechnology.
NC A&T is "well known in areas such as advanced materials, nanotechnology, computational science,  and 
engineering," 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. This includes two US Army Centers of Excellence that are working on projects to enhance the capabilities of soldiers on the battlefield.  [3]

 NC A&T’s engineering and technology prowess hasn't gone unnoticed on the national level. In 2006 in the category of Doctorial Granting  Universities NC A&T was rated as a High Research University in the Carnegie Foundation classification of colleges  and universities.    In 2008 NC A&T received an 18 Million dollar grant for an Engineering Research Center (ECR) - N.C. A&T Awarded NSF Engineering Research Center foundation. The award to A&T marked the first time that an HBCU has been the lead institution of an ERC.   NC A&T  the largest producers of  minority engineers in the country and only PhD HMI in North Carolina, offers approved  master's degrees in Civil Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Industrial Systems & Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Computational Science and Engineering, as well as doctoral degrees in Energy and Environmental Systems Engineering, computational Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Industrial and Systems Engineering.

Expertise in nanotechnology may become a prerequisite for many scientists and engineers that support a wide variety of industries, nano expertise among the North Carolina science and engineering workforce may soon become a competitive advantage issue for the state."  And  " almost all of the occupations which will be affected by nanotechnology will require a BS in engineering with a broad, interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approach; require an understanding not only of electrical, mechanical and civil engineering, but biology, physics and chemistry as well."  [5]
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.  Create market-oriented university research clusters to better communicate research programs.

  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Advanced Materials, including Chemicals, Plastics and Nanotechnology
  • Biotechnology and Pharmacology
  • Computing, Software and the Internet
  • Design and Arts
  • Logistics and Distribution
  • Public Health
  • Biotechnology, Bio & Food Sciences
  • Advanced Materials & Nanotechnology
  • Computational Science & Engineering
  • Leadership & Community Development
  • Information Sciences & Technology

In HB 1264(7) the Legislature mandated the Board of Governors emphasized existing and new programs at Liberal Arts Universities specifically aimed at meeting business, industry, workforce, and career needs of North Carolina in the State's changing and growing knowledge-based economy, taking into account, as appropriate, State and regional economic strategies.  With the source of enrollment growth being minorities as white enrollment leveled off across the University of North Carolina, Guilford Technical Community College experiencing record enrollment, ECPI University and ITT Tech offering addition technology based education in the Triad education market place.      What’s left on the plate for HWI Liberal Arts UNCG with a  potential national and regional prominent HBI NCA&T across town?   Would political astute business organization affiliated with university use political connections to reposition HWI UNCG in and HBI NCA&T out?  UNCG 2003-08 formulated a 2003-08 academic plan to establish a joint Millennial campus with NC A&T.
