Field Trips to the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research (IALR) are a wonderful way to gain further understanding of, and experience firsthand, the advances and innovations that are being produced at IALR. Visitors will not only learn about the research taking place at IALR, but also about the impact it has on the region's economic development.

"Our group came away inspired with new ideas for ways to partner with industry and higher education institutions to make learning more relevant for students."

Frank McKay, North Carolina New Schools
