New Faculty Orientation Monday, August 7, 9 am – 5pm.

Does your department have new faculty joining UNCG next year? Did you start at UNCG this spring (2017)?

Let the University Teaching and Learning Commons know – and reserve a spot at the 2017 New Faculty Orientation.

Join us to learn more about the faculty community at UNCG. (email: lmpipe@uncg.edu) *Faculty attending New Faculty Orientation will receive an honor cord marking their entering Faculty cohort. The honor cords are rotated based on the original Woman’s College jacket colors for class years. A unique way to connect to UNCG’s teaching heritage.

In May 2017, Senior Vice Provost Alan Boyette announced the formation of the ATPC to provide technology project governance for areas reporting to the Provost. The ATPC replaces the previous technology project prioritization system in which “division reps” serving on ITS’ Project Management Group maintained separate project request lists for their respective areas. Those with technology project requests that require Division of ITS resources, or those initiating projects that impact multiple areas or departments within Academic Affairs, should submit requests to their ATPC representative. For more information, including the ATPC charge and membership by area, see Academic Technology Planning Council.

UNCG’s Office of Research and Economic Development will change its name to the Office of Research and Engagement.

This name change, effective July 1, reflects and internal restructuring that more directly focuses on the university’s efforts on supporting and enhancing research, scholarship, and creative activity while continuing its strong commitment to community engagement. The name reflects our Carnegie Foundation classifications as an R2 research and community engaged university.

More information about the new structure will be available in the coming months.
