Biographical/historical note

The Office of Textile Extension and Applied Research (TEAR) in the North Carolina State University College of Textiles works to enhance the relationship between the College and the textile industry. Textile research and extension activities have taken place since early in the history of North Carolina State University. In 1968, the Office of Textiles Extension and Applied Research (TEAR) was established in the College of Textiles. The Extension branch of TEAR continues to offer short courses, seminars, conferences, and other continuing education opportunities on and off campus to alumni, textiles executives, and other industry partners. In collaboration with private industry partners, the Applied Research branch sponsors textiles research projects intended to supplement traditional education and encourage participation in textile industry research and development. The Associate Dean is actively involved in the development and operation of the extension and research programs and is a primary contact person for industry partners interested in continuing education programs and research opportunities.
