Collaboratory

What is Collaboratory at NC State?

Collaboratory is NC State’s tool to expand and advance our external engagement and public service with North Carolina and beyond.

Collaboratory is:

  • A public platform that connects individuals and organizationsEastern 4-H Camp counselor explains how to play a game to campers.
  • A secure database that collects external engagement and public service activities
  • A measurement and tracking tool that provides a portrait of activity and informs institutional strategy
  • A showcase that provides a ‘face’ for inspiration, reputation, and validation
  • An educational tool that informs about and distinguishes the spectrum of engagement and service activities

Coordinated by the NC State Office of Outreach and Engagement, Collaboratory helps NC State and its partners understand the who, what, where, when, and why of activities designed with and for external communities.

How Can Collaboratory Help You?

Collaboratory provides multiple stakeholders with external engagement and public service data and stories.
