A Message from Dean Hoversten

On July 1, 2016, Mark Hoversten stepped into his role as the new Dean of the NC State College of Design. Dean Hoversten is glad to join our Wolfpack family and has shared the following message with the design community in Raleigh:

It’s a pleasure to step into the role of Dean of the distinguished NC State University College of Design. Design matters! Our faculty and alumni unleash the power of design to address the confounding challenges of our time. We develop talented students who leverage design thinking, doing, and making to transform the human experience.

In the coming years, we will continue to build upon that strong academic foundation and our prior successes to foster the next generation of designers through student-focused learning, interdisciplinary initiatives, research, and cooperative extension.

I look forward to traveling together on the journey of life in design.
