First Impressions

Dean Richard Linton

Since Sept. 15, Dean Linton’s first day on the job, he’s been “in learning mode – learning about the reach and breadth of this great College and getting to know the people who carry out its research, teaching and extension missions, as well as the beneficiaries of its work. They share a passion and commitment for the vital role the College and N.C. State University continue to play in lives of North Carolina’s citizens.”

Dynamic partnership
