Student success depends on all of us – leaders, educators, policymakers and philanthropists – implementing and refining transformative, student-centered practices. Our action-oriented insights reflect North Carolina’s realities and can be trusted to guide decisions that advance student success.

The Belk Center for Community College Leadership and Research at North Carolina State University held their annual all-staff and faculy meeting on Tuesday, September 12, 2023. The center provided their staff and faculty with headshots and a team photo. Additionally, the meeting was documented by photographing the meeting and staging some working/people-in-action images for marketing and communications.
