The VN CFEP Cluster

The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program is bringing some of the best and brightest minds to join NC State University’s interdisciplinary efforts to solve some of the globe’s most significant problems. Guided by a strong strategic plan and an aggressive vision, the cluster hiring program is adding new faculty members in visual narrative to add more breadth and depth to NC State’s already-strong efforts. The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program marks a major initiative of the university’s strategic plan, “The Pathway to the Future.”  NC State will soon complete its first cohort of twelve clusters with 41 hires to date. This success led to a commitment to establish eight new clusters, including the Visual Narrative Cluster, consisting of 33 additional interdisciplinary faculty hires.  We invite you to explore more information about the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program and this cluster at
