About NC State Education

The NC State College of Education started the Why I Chose Education campaign to support professional educators, encourage others to enter the profession, and create a positive conversation around the field. Driven by our land-grant mission for the past 90 years, we serve North Carolina and beyond to ensure the educational excellence of all learners across their lifespan. Because of this commitment, we stand as North Carolina's leading college of education.
