Summit, presented by the North Carolina State University College of Education, is an annual event designed to expose 9th-12th grade high school male students, in particular male students of color, to the diverse role of leaders in a growing global society. Through the B.U.I.L.D. Summit, students will engage in activities that will help to enhance their leadership skills, personal development, and career and college readiness. They will also have the opportunity to interact with campus leaders, community partners, and their peers.
