The Academy members include individuals from academia, industry, government, and all others who support the objectives and goals of the Academy.
The Academy is managed by a Board of Directors composed of elected and appointed members.
The Academy is supported primarily by individual, institutional, and corporate membership dues and donations.
The Academy consists of three branches: the Senior Academy, Collegiate Academy (officially Collegiate Academy of the North Carolina Academy of Science, CANCAS) and Student Academy (officially North Carolina Student Academy of Science, NCSAS), but all are components of the Academy.
The Senor Academy is an organization of academic, corporate and governmental scientists and graduate students. The Academy encourages public interest in science, conducts an annual meeting at a NC college campus, publishes the Journal of the North Carolina Academy of Science, and provides leadership and support for the collegiate and student divisions.
The Collegiate Academy of the North Carolina Academy of Science (CANCAS) is community of undergraduate students and faculty advisors. We may be from different institutions and many different clubs and perhaps even different disciplines of science, but we have a lot in common. By sharing our common interests, we find stability. By sharing our diversity, we grow.
Our interest in scientific endeavors is our common goal. Knowing that scientific progress requires the combined effort of many individuals, we hope to foster interactions among our membership. We hope you will join us as we work to stimulate interactions among members of the scientific community in North Carolina.
