North Carolina’s Education Agenda: Future Missions of the University of North Carolina in Knowledge Asset-Building

University of North Carolina General Administration
Start Date: Apr 2006 — End Date: Dec 2006

The University of North Carolina (UNC) engaged Eva Klein & Associates, Ltd. (EKA) working in collaboration with the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness and Gottlieb and Associates to conduct preliminary analyses for the purpose of designing a study to answer the question: “What do the people of North Carolina need from their University for the future?” The team’s mandate was to conduct academically oriented research and to deploy a consultation process with constituents in an effort to define issues that should form a study of mission, vision, or agenda for the University. The resulting two-volume study provides the foundation for UNC’s efforts to transform into a “demand-driven” university during the next two decades.
