Statistics Alumna Makes Pledge to Create Professorships, Scholarships

She recently made a substantial planned gift to the College of Sciences and the Park Scholarships and Caldwell Fellows programs that includes funding for professorships, scholarships and experiential learning opportunities.
Passport to New Perspectives
NC State students trek across the globe to make the world their classroom. From the United Kingdom, to Iceland, China, Ghana and more, study abroad opportunities offer hands-on education and unforgettable experiences. Recent successes reflect the university's commitment to make study abroad available for all students through efforts that include increasing private support.

Exploring Public History in Prague
Six NC State students recently explored medieval monuments, museums and much more during the first Public History in Prague course. The class tailored its tours for visitors of NC State's European Center in Prague, the university's hub for international networks and experiences. Personalized tours helped provide unique opportunities outside the classroom — and country. Students taking part in study abroad programs are often supported through private funding.
