The interview will conclude with a tour of our facilities and a visit with our Chair. We provide one night’s hotel accommodations for your convenience and the hotel shuttle will transport you to and from the institution. Raleigh–Durham Airport is a short drive and if you chose to drive we are located just minutes from Interstate 40 and Interstate 85.
