To:  UNCG Faculty

From:  Debbie Storrs, Provost & Executive Vice Chancellor

RE: Monthly Faculty Small Group Meetings Announcement

With the many changes and challenges occurring across higher education and in our university, it is more important than ever to remain in dialogue with one another. Towards this end, the Provost is introducing a new “Talk with the Provost” series. Once a month, Provost Storrs will host an in-person or virtual meeting with a small group of faculty to share experiences and brainstorm ideas for the road ahead.

There will be no specific agenda. Instead this will be an opportunity for you to share with the Provost what is happening in your classes, with your students, as well as with your research and/or community practice and service activities. It also provides an opportunity for you to learn more about what is going on across campus and to ask questions about the direction of higher education generally and about UNCG specifically.

To help facilitate a lively and engaged discussion, the meetings will be capped at 10-12 faculty per session. The meeting dates are listed below (and on the Provost’s website). To register, please use this form to sign up for up to three meetings that work well for you to attend. This will allow us to try to best accommodate everyone’s busy schedules for one of the meetings. You will receive a calendar invitation with zoom or physical location confirmation for one of these meetings.
