Today, an ‘Unconference’

On Wednesday, April 11, 2012, the Warren Ashby Residential College, in association with the Cornelia Strong and Ione Grogan Residential Colleges and UNCG Teach, will host UNCG’s second annual Unconference. Unlike a traditional academic conference, the Unconference is driven by its participants. Students share their thoughts and personal experiences regarding issues of culture, politics, race, religion, education and global affairs through dance, song, painting, photography, sculpture, and scholarly presentations and forums. The result is a highly eclectic and creative display of students’ skills, talents and achievements across a variety of majors.

Artwork displays and group activities will begin at 4 p.m. in Mary Foust and Grogan residence halls. Student presentations will begin at 5 p.m. in Grogan, Mary Foust and South Spencer Halls. The Unconference will close with a combined ceremony in Guilford Hall at 8 p.m. For individual schedules, contact the Residential Colleges via the email addresses listed below.

The Unconference is co-sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Studies and the Housing & Residence Life Social Justice Committee. Anyone with questions may email warc@uncg.edu, d_barber@uncg.edu or acbarton@uncg.edu.
