The North Carolina State University and VR Corporation are collaborating on student development programmes at NC State to advance apparel and textiles innovation. The College of Textiles and VF have a long-standing relationship, which is strengthened by NC State’s Poole College of Management with expertise in business analytics and supply chain management.
VF Corporation has always been a proud partner of NC State University, one of the world’s top universities and home to the only College in the United States devoted entirely to textiles. Through their shared expertise in research and consumer insights, they aim to stimulate apparel innovation while also developing a consistent pipeline of exceptional leaders.
The College of Textiles and VF have a long-standing relationship. Under this new multi-year agreement, the partnership is further strengthened by NC State’s Poole College of Management, which brings expertise in business analytics and supply chain management. The new partnership adds structure to existing collaborations and creates new opportunities for students in both Colleges.
The partnership will offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate education and training activities for students within the colleges, including internships, student projects and competitions. It will facilitate industry-leading research that will elevate apparel and textile products and experiences. It will also provide executive education opportunities for VF associates and establish a VF presence on Centennial Campus, NC State’s nationally recognised research campus. VF’s presence on Centennial Campus will create a collaboration space where students, faculty and VF employees can come together to solve challenges and accelerate innovation.
