The AVCRED will assist the VCRED in developing strategic plans and collaborate with the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development (aVCRED) in formulating and promoting polices that support a large and diverse faculty in conduct of their research, scholarship and creative work at the highest levels.

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (N.C. A&T) announces a national search for an Associate Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development (AVCRED) within the Division of Research and Economic Development (DORED). The AVCRED will report directly to the Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development (VCRED). As the second position in the DORED organization chart, the AVCRED is a critical part of the Division's succession plan. As such, the AVCRED will work closely with the VCRED in developing strategies for growing the research enterprise and addressing other strategic priorities and needs. The AVCRED needs to be an enterprise wide thinker who will bring a strategic, innovative, and collaborative leadership mindset to help grow the size and impact of University research. The AVCRED will be expected to collaborate across the University to create opportunities for, and support discovery and innovation by, University researchers. The AVCRED will have a specific focus on research development. The AVCRED will join N.C. A&T at an exciting time in its history as it sets a record achievement for new research awards in fiscal year 2021 (over $75 million) during its quest to move up the ranks from its Carnegie status of high research activity, in becoming a more competitive doctoral research university.
