The Institute for Nonprofit Research, Education and Engagement (INPREE)
Our mission is to enhance the capacity and leadership of nonprofit organizations through research, education and engagement.
We connect NC State University with the nonprofit community, leveraging the expertise and dedication of faculty, students, staff and community partners to build nonprofit capacity and develop nonprofit leaders.
Institutions of higher learning have always played a critical role in developing future leaders for global citizenry. As our world changes more rapidly than ever, we witness the blurring of sector lines in addressing society’s major challenges. We serve as a center of expertise, generator of knowledge, and host of a collaborative and diverse community of scholars, social innovators and entrepreneurs.
