The fund also supports our speakers series that brings leaders from North Carolina, the nation and the international community to speak with faculty, students and the public. Gifts to the SPIA Enhancement Fund help us address critical needs that otherwise may not be met. We also have numerous other funds that support specific programs and scholarships.
