Research Triangle

The Research Triangle SSN seeks to build a vibrant community of engaged citizens in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill region of North Carolina. Drawing from the region's world-class universities, our chapter includes experts on issues ranging from education and health to the environment and foreign affairs. As public-minded academics, we aim to inform policy and to learn from citizens and civic leaders. We are united by our interest in a brighter future for North Carolina, the South, the U.S., and the world.
