Administrative Group meetings
NCICU hosts meetings for staff in 19 campus administrative functions each year. The programs provide presentations on relevant topics, and opportunities for discussing challenges and sharing ideas.
Each year, NCICU hosts a week-long tour for high school counselors during which of one-third of our 36 campuses are visited. Counselors learn about the diversity and wealth of programs and opportunities provided by our independent colleges and universities.
Our annual Ethics Bowl brings student teams from many of our campuses together to discuss the ethical considerations presented in cases on topics relating to the year’s theme.
This project is one component of a long-term effort by the NCICU libraries to build an effective framework to support collaboration among our libraries.
State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS)
Students from colleges, universities, and community colleges in North Carolina participate in this annual showcase of undergraduate student research and creativity.
NCICU has received a number of grants that support new and innovative programs that benefit to our campuses and students’ success.
NCICU Economic Development Council
NCICU has established the NCICU Economic Development Council, which is composed of representatives from our 36 colleges and universities, to involve the campuses in economic development at the local, regional, and state levels. The Council meets twice a year at various locations. Outstanding speakers on all aspects of economic development are on the agenda for each meeting. Examples include the top officials at the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, Department of Commerce, the Rural Center, Golden LEAF Foundation, NCSU Institute for Emerging Issues, North Carolina Economic Development Association, among others. Members share examples of economic development activity in which they have been, or are currently involved. Members also have an opportunity to better acquaint the speakers about their individual campuses.
NCICU Tuition Exchange
In an effort to improve the fringe benefits available to their employees, several North Carolina independent colleges and universities have combined to create the North Carolina Independent College and University Tuition Exchange Program. This program entitles certified dependents of college employees to attend undergraduate school tuition-free at any of the participating colleges and universities. Dependents will be certified using the same criteria used to define tuition-free status at the “home” institution. For details about this program, call NCICU’s office: 919.832.5817.
