The newly created green space on the north side of the Talley Student Union is named the Stafford Commons in recognition of Thomas H. Stafford, Jr’s years of service to the university. Stafford was vice chancellor for student affairs from 1983-2012 and a university employee since 1971. During his tenure as vice chancellor, he served on the Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services, a panel that advised the Secretary of Defense on issues relating to women in the military. He was the only North Carolinian on the committee from 1990-1993. The naming of the newly created commons for Stafford honors his special relationship with NC State and his commitment to making students the university’s top priority. For more information visit or

The formal naming ceremony will take place following completion of renovation work on the Talley Student Union.
