The Supply Chain Resource Cooperative serves as a thought leader in the increasingly complex and competitive supply chain industry; documenting and disseminating new supply chain management knowledge to help companies, practitioners, and students.

Who We Are

As part of NC State’s Poole College of Management, the Supply Chain Resource Cooperative is a unique, industry-university partnership dedicated to advancing the supply chain industry and the professionalism of its practitioners. The SCRC provides support, services, and programs to benefit three overlapping constituent groups: supply chain management students, supply chain thought leaders and corporate partners from diverse businesses and industries to create a full circle of impact, innovation, and real-world solutions. Businesses tap into the value and resources of NC State, and students gain knowledge and experience to prepare for the workforce.

What We Do

The Supply Chain Resource Cooperative (SCRC) is where talented students, world-renowned faculty, and executive advisors team up with companies and organizations across the diverse supply chain to solve the industry’s most pressing issues.

The hands-on projects provided me with the skills and business acumen I needed to hit the ground running in my new role.
