Wicked Problems, Wolfpack Solutions is a multidisciplinary experience created for all incoming first-year and transfer students at NC State University. Each year, this course focuses on a current “wicked problem,” defined as a highly complex problem that can only be addressed through collaborative, multidisciplinary efforts. The course explores possible solutions through the perspectives of NC State scholars representing many different areas of study and reflects NC State’s commitment to the inclusion of individuals and ideas from a broad diversity of backgrounds and experiences.
The course features outstanding talks given by some of NC State’s best scholar communicators. Because of the high quality and relevance of these presentations, we’ve made them openly accessible to educators and others. If you use these materials, please let us know.
