The Nonwovens Institute’s vision is to “be the global leader in research, education and outreach for nonwovens and affiliated industries.” To support this vision it is essential that NWI continues to invest in fundamental research by funding graduate student education in the form of assistantships and in state-of-the-art testing, lab and pilot facilities. In support of this mission NWI formed a Nonwoven Foundation Fund that is financially managed by the NC State University Foundation.
The Nonwovens Institute is fortunate to have alumni, industry partners and friends who support us and our faculty staff and graduates in a multitude of ways. From gifts used to purchase equipment and fund scholarships to internships and employment, the generosity of our community continues to be one of our greatest assets.
