LIHC and MERGE Academic Think Tank

A call for proposals is announced: Lloyd International Honors College and MERGE in the College of Arts and Sciences will offer a year-long academic Think Tank under the auspices of the Honors College. The Think Tank will bring together a faculty team, highly qualified students, and interested community partners to address an important societal issue or problem. Under the direction of the two faculty mentors, students will explore the complexities of the chosen topic for the year, participating in research, classroom learning, special events, and hearing from guest speakers during the fall semester, and completing a significant product of the Think Tank that has application to the wider community in the spring semester. They will earn three hours of Honors course credit in the spring semester for successful completion of the full year project.

Two-member full-time UNCG faculty teams may submit proposals. At least one faculty member must be in the College of Arts and Sciences. The honors college and MERGE encourage proposals that have a service-learning component.

Complete applications must be submitted by Dec. 15. At honorscollege.uncg.edu, see the Academic Think Tank link for the application and complete information.
