Dr. Y. Richard Kim has been selected as part of the inaugural class of the university’s Research Leadership Academy. The newly created academy will promote a culture of research leadership at NC State and operate as the faculty-driven epicenter for the development and implementation of best practices in the empowerment of research faculty at all levels of the university
The University Research Committee, which spearheaded the establishment of the academy, originally anticipated the first class to consist of eight members. The qualifications and expertise of the twenty-three nominees was so great that Alan Rebar, Vice Chancellor for Research, Innovation and Economic Development for NC State University, made the decision to fund an additional three members. “All of the nominees were exceptional. Even limiting the number selected to eleven was extremely difficult,” he said.
