The Friday Institute for Educational Innovation is located on North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus and physically connected to Centennial Campus Middle School, a Wake County, NC public middle school.  After years of intensive planning, fundraising, and developing foundational projects, this state-of-the-art building opened in November 2005. The 33,000-square-foot multidisciplinary research and educational outreach institute is among the most technically advanced facilities at NC State University.

The Institute contains spaces designed for conducting research, teaching both face-to-face and online, developing multi-media educational resources, working collaboratively, and convening meetings and running conferences related to our mission, all supported by sophisticated technologies.
