Researching the sector

N.C. State University is the first institution to become a partner with the National Center for Charitable Statistics in a new initiative to make its data available to scholars and other researchers.

That data will be available through the N.C. State University Libraries and, on a more limited basis, to researchers at Duke University and N.C. Central University, both in Durham, and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Harvard also has become a partner of the National Center, and Indiana University is expected to join soon.

To launch the effort, Thomas Pollack, associate director of the National Center for Charitable Statistics, spoke to more than two dozen scholars and researches on September 29 at a seminar sponsored by the Institute for Nonprofits at N.C. State.
