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 Board of Governors to contract a private consulting firm that had experience in higher education to conduct a comprehensive study (Staying a Step Ahead) 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 (6),  states With regard to the University System, there shall be special emphasis on the development of signature programs for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.   
 
Nanotechnology, Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, should have been HBCU NCA&T Signature Program
 
“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."
  • “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.
  • The global market for nanotechnology products and services is predicted to increase by 18-28 percent annually for the next several years (BCC Research, Inc.) and is expected to reach $2.6 trillion by 2014 (Lux Research), showing the potential for strong growth in this sector of the economy


"NCA&T has 12-years of experience in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology”

 

NC A&T is "well known in areas such as advanced materials, nanotechnology,, computational science, and says N. Radhakrishnan, former VP 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.


 
NCA&T State University has been funded at an average rate of $3-5 million per year in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Most of the research in nanoengineering is done in the Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures (CAMSS). Several Centers and projects are under CAMSS, including the NSF Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST), the DoD Center for Nanoscience, Nanomaterials and Multifunctional Materials (CNN) for Homeland Security, the NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center (NSEC), the NSF project on US/Europe Materials Collaboration: Self-Organized Nanostructured Thin Films for Catalysis, the NSF project on Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Teams (NIRT), the NSF Major Research Instrumentation for Nanoengineering Research, and the NSF Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education (NUE) program. CAMSS also facilitates many of the materials research activities of the NASA-National Institute for Aerospace (NIA). In addition, the Center for Composite Materials Research (CCMR) does research in nano-enhanced composite materials and the Army Center of Excellence for Battlefield Capability Enhancements (Flexible Displays) does research in material characterization and development of novel displays.
 
NCA&T was 4th in Nanotechnology Research at North Carolina Universities with $11 Million Dollars between 2000-2005. UNC at Greensboro 10th among the 11 institutions conducted $45,000 dollars of Nanotechnology research between 2000 thru 2005.
 
The National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) responsible for collecting and presenting statistical data and information for the nation; classifies Nanoscience and Nanoengineering as Nanotechnology   CIP 15.1601: Engineering technologies and Engineering related fields.
 
Educational and Skills Requirements Nanotechnology is not an industry.  Rather, nanotechnology refers to a set of platform technologies that involve the assembly or manipulation of objects at a very small scale. 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. Nanotechnology will require an understanding not only of electrical, mechanical and civil engineering but biology, physics, and chemistry as well. 
 

 

Historical black North Carolina A&T, as one of the state's two land grant institutions, has programs through the doctoral level. Its programs include engineering, arts and sciences, agricultural and environmental sciences, business and economics, education, nursing, technology, and graduates studies.“ The expected roles of a land-grant institution, is teaching agriculture and engineering, and providing cooperative extension services”. NC A&T offers approved master's degrees in Civil in Civil Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Industrial Systems & System Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Computation 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, the proposed programs do not appear to be significant departures from the approved curriculum of NC A&T.
 

Emerging from a legislative mandated  study, Staying a Step ahead, to ensure  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  stated:

Take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Millennium Campus Act to lead Collaboration and innovation effort with industry.


Staying a Step ahead in aspects mirrored Legislative enactments and existing UNC Strategic directions -  road maps for regional business interest to exploit taxpayer funded institutions of higher education assets, faculty, research and students –  that  explicitly referred to research clusters created by HBCU NCA&T.

HB 1264(7)(2003-04)  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.
 

 “ Its [UNCG} historically strong programs in music, education and nursing are not the kinds of programs that spin off research and development or software companies to fuel high tech economies.".

 

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro 2003-2004 Profile


“Activities/Resources: Leverage faculty collaboration at JSNN to enhance research partnerships between UNCG and NCA&T researchers.  Expected Result, UNCG opportunities in grants previously unavailable due to limitations in areas of certain research expertise. “

To offer Nanoscience degrees UNCG requires access to NCA&T academic programs and research:
 

“Although the degree is in Nanoscience (does not include Nanoengineering), students will be given the opportunity to take relevant courses at the School of Engineering at North Carolina A&T University and will be able to work on collaborative projects with faculty in the School of Engineering”.


UNC-G, the former Historical white Woman’s College of the UNC system, has a strong tradition in the Liberal Arts.  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 HBCU NCA&T across town?  Would the political astute business organization affiliate with UNC Greensboro use political connections to reposition HWI UNCG in and HBCU NCA&T out? UNC at Greensboro formulated a 2003-08 academic plan to establish a joint millennial campus with NCA&T.

 

Nanoscience and Nanoengineering Building (with UNCG). This project would house Biotechnology Research currently located in the [NCA&T] College of Engineering, School of Technology, Physical Sciences and Applied Sciences.  The new NCA&T/UNCG Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering to be located on the South Campus of the Greensboro Center for Innovative Development (NCA&T/UNCG Joint Millennial Campus). The building would include the academic departments, laboratory facilities (teaching and research), center and institutes of the new School as well as selected centers and institutes currently located at the partner universities. This facility would served as the epicenter for research and teaching in Nanotechnology for the partner universities, Greensboro, the Triad and beyond.

In addition to degree programs in Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, JSNN will engage in research and outreach, as well as the expected roles of a land-grant institution, such as teaching agriculture and engineering, and providing cooperative extension services. The JSNN facilities will be located on land that was formerly part of the NCA&T farm.”

UNCG will act as the financial manger for JSNN beginning in fiscal year " 09-10, using a budget account code established for the JSNN. JSNN will follow All UNCG budget and fiscal management policies and procedures.

Pursuant bogus Joint Millennial Campus allegation Nanoscience and Nanoengineering Building (with UNCG), unambiguous UNC Board of Governors transferred academic programs, research, and Centers created by NCA&T to "alleged Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering" to be accessed by UNC-G and Gateway University Research Park, Inc.; scripting HBCU NCA&T out and the HWI UNC-G in an UNC-G affiliate Gateway University Research Park In.

Speaking Speaking before before Board of Governors, Committee on Budget and Finance Chair Lobbyist Greensboro Attorney Jim W. Phillips, Jr. , " reported "that the Boards of Trustees at North Carolina A&T State University and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro requested that the land formerly designated for the Central School for the Deaf and allocated to the Board of Governors by the 2003 Session of the General Assembly and a 75- acre parcel of land currently comprising a portion of the North Carolina A&T State University Farm be designated as a joint millennial campus", allegedly approved Oct. 10, 2003. 
 
NC G. S.: 116-198.34 (8b): upon formal request by the constituent institutions, the Board of Governors may authorize two or more constituent institutions which meet the requirements of this section to create a Joint Millennial. 
 

Public Record Reply from UNC-Greensboro for statutory required request to establish a Joint Millennial Campus produced alleged Chancellors signed Document dated Aug. 22nd, 2003.  Alleged Chancellors signed document stated: "we are pleased to inform you that this proposal has been approved by both of our Boards of Trustees and is supported by local community leaders and organizations including Action Greensboro. 
 

Recommended by Chancellors  Renick and Sullivan, NC A&T and UNC-G Board of Trustees duplicate Resolutions: In Support of The Creation of a Joint Millennial Campus between NC A&T and UNCG, dated Aug. 22, 2003,  and Aug. 28, 2003 ,   calling  for seeking designation of Joint Millennial Campus in terms of the Central North Carolina School of the Deaf  real estate, transferred to UNC Board of Governors for the purpose of establishing a Joint Millennial Campus.  Universities' resolution seek designation of a Joint Millennial without a syllable pertaining to  a 75-acre parcel of NCA&T farmland, statutory foreclosed Phillips  alleged NCA&T/UNCG Joint Millennial Campus.  
 
NC A&T Resolutions: In Support of The Creation of a Joint Millennial Campus  signed by Gerald L. Truesdale as Vice Chair Board of Trustees and Velma Speight-Buford, as Secretary maybe Bogus.
 

 Notwithstanding the Millennial Campus Statue does not provide for the General Administration to create an NC G. S.: 116-198.34. (8b) Joint Millennial Campus and UNC Policy Manual 600.1.3 limits the President to acquisition of $25,000 of less without Board of Governors approval.  

The Erskine Bowles General Administration submitted Acquisition of Real Property P0-1, dated March 16, 2006, to Department of Administration, State Property Office, Stated “ This Property is needed for the following reason and purposes”:

To establish a Joint Millennial Campus for North Carolina A&T State University (NCA&T) and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) 

Real Estate two parcels:

·       75 acres of property located adjacent to the NCA&T Farm and located on Lee Street; 
Approximately 75 acres of property and facilities formerly known as the Central North Carolina School of the Deaf

·      Erskine Bowles General Administration PO-1 for the purpose of Establishing a NCA&T/UNC Joint Millennial Campus unequivocal extinguished UNC Board of Governor false claim alleged Oct. 2003 designated the Central School of the Deaf reallocated to the Board of Governors and 75-acre at North Carolina  A&T as a Joint Millennial Campus.

 
In spite of  the  Erskine Bowles General Administration submission of Acquisition of Real Property PO-1, dated March 16, 2006, to Department of Administration, State Property office to establish Joint Millennial Campus for NCA&T and UNCG which claimed the acquisition was supported by the NC A&T and UNCG Board of Trustees.
 
Bowles Administration May 2006, recommended UNC BOG document Lease of Joint Millennial Campus – North Carolina A&T State University and The University of North Carolina at Greensboro containing knowing false claim: 
  • ·        The Board of Governors approved, the designation of the land (formerly the Central School for the Deaf) reallocated to the Board of Governors by the 2003 Session of the General assembly and a 75-acre parcel of land currently comprising a portion of the NCA&T State University Farm as a Joint Millennial Campus.

  • ·        Now, the Boards of Trustees of NCA&T and UNCG are requesting permission to execute a ground lease of the land and existing improvements for the Joint Millennial Campus to the Greensboro Center for Innovative Development, a jointly-controlled and jointly-funded 501(c)(3) entity that will administer the educational, research, and economic development mission of the Joint Millennial Campus.
