Friday Institute for Educational Innovation Celebrates 20 Years on NC State’s Centennial Campus

When the NC State College of Education was raising funds to support a new institute for research-to-practice innovation, Ann and Jim Goodnight came forward and said they wanted to name the building after Bill Friday, the former president of the University of North Carolina System and an education adviser to Presidents Johnson and Carter. The College of Education approached Friday with the idea, and he said he would only agree if Ida, his wife’s name, was on it too. This was the start of the William and Ida Friday Institute for Educational Innovation.
