Arrivederci, Patrick Lee Lucas

Portrait of Patrick Lee LucasThe Faculty Teaching & Learning Commons has regularly hosted get-together events this year to help faculty members from across disciplines get to know one another in a relaxed setting. This week’s event, on Thursday, April 25, at 4 p.m., features ice cream.

The final event of the semester at the Faculty Center – on May 2 – will offer the same opportunity . But it also offers a chance to say best wishes to Dr. Patrick Lee Lucas, FTLC’s executive director.

Lucas, who received the 2011 BOG Excellence in Teaching Award, will soon leave UNCG to join the University of Kentucky, as an IARC blog notes.

Organizers promise an Italian theme. (We’re hoping gelato will be served.) All UNCG faculty and staff are invited to this event.

The event is co-sponsored by the Lloyd International Honors College (where he was an inaugural faculty fellow and is teaching this semester), the Department of Art (which will display information about a Study in Florence program) and the FTLC.

The “Arrivederci, Patrick Lee Lucas” event is Thursday, May 2, 4-6 p.m. in the Faculty Center.
