NC State’s Tourism Extension team is committed to enhancing tourism across the state. Our specialists and graduate students conduct research on a variety of tourism topics that provide equitable and sustainable solutions to today’s economic, social and environmental challenges. Findings from our research are the basis for a variety of programs delivered throughout rural NC, specializing in agritourism, sustainable tourism development, micro-entrepreneurship, and partnerships and collaboration. These programs assist entrepreneurs, business owners, communities, and other tourism-related organizations to improve their tourism offerings and make informed decisions based on sound research.
