About Us

The Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) is a public policy, think-and-do tank that convenes leaders from business, non profit organizations, government and higher education to tackle some of the biggest issues facing North Carolina's future growth and prosperity.

Through research, ideas, debate and action, we prepare leaders to address North Carolina's future challenges and opportunities. North Carolina has long been a model state in the Southeast, with a legacy of forward-thinking leadership and effective collaboration. IEI seeks to mirror and encourage these values, serving as the premiere, university-based public policy organization.
