Dean Paola Sztajn completes the leadership program for North Carolina

NC State College of Education Dean Paola Sztajn was one of 56 civic and community leaders statewide to complete the prestigious Leadership North Carolina (LNC) program on May 8, 2024, as part of the 2023-2024 class.

Leadership North Carolina – the state’s premier leadership program – uses a rigorous selection process each year to bring together a class of established and emerging leaders from across the state from sectors including government, business, nonprofits and education.

“Being chosen to be part of this selective program gave me the opportunity to learn more about our state, connect with colleagues from different sectors, and continue to educate our community about the work of Colleges of Education,” said Sztajn. “It has indeed been an honor to be part of LNC Class 31, and I look forward to continuing to support, collaborate with and grow this network of leaders from across North Carolina.”

Leadership North Carolina aims to inform, develop and engage leaders by broadening their understanding of and involvement in issues and opportunities facing the state.

As part of Leadership North Carolina Class 31, Sztajn and other participants attended seven two-and-a-half-day sessions where they learned about critical issues in the state through discussions with top officials and professionals, intentional dialogue and experiential learning activities.

The sessions, held at various locations across the state, focused on six key areas: government, education, health and human services, economic development, the environment and North Carolina’s economic diversity.
