|| The NCCU Think Tank will provide a non-partisan, collegiate environment in which interested student-scholars of diverse perspectives and experiences can come together to identify pressing issues within our society, and propose realistic solutions. As future leaders of society, the members of the NCCU Think Tank will devote themselves to the research and analysis of issues especially pertaining to the lives of African- Americans. The NCCU Think Tank will dedicate itself to addressing social, political, and economic issues that affect African Americans. The organization achieves this primary objective through resources such as literary panel discussions, symposiums, and featured speakers; the NCCU Think Tank will obtain the necessary information to offer sound positions based on fact. The members will utilize research, policy, and practice as a window into issues, lessons, new thinking and debates on hot issues in development.
