Chancellor Martin joined a delegation of some 60 business and academic leaders from Greensboro in a visit to the North Carolina General Assembly on Wednesday.  The group met with legislative leaders to advocate for the Greensboro Partnership’s top legislative priorities for the session.  Priority No. 1: Add $2 million to the annual budget of the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering.  That amount would bring the school to the full $6.9 million annual funding that was originally projected.
