Fall’s first ‘Faculty Center Take-over’ Sept. 5

Faculty Center Takeover events were popular last year, a great way for all those who teach at UNCG to get to know one another in a relaxed setting.

The first “Takeover” will be Thursday, Sept. 5, 4-6 p.m. The event is cosponsored by the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures. Enjoy food and drink samples from eight different cultures. The event is also co-sponsored by the QEP team/Global Engagement Learning Community, and there’ll be a “mystery object” for participants to use to think globally.

You might ask, “Are staff invited to Faculty Center Takeovers?”

Absolutely. Anyone who teaches – whether in front of a lecture hall, in mentoring relationships, as a tutor, peer-to-peer, as an advisor, what have you – is invited to be a part of the FTLC’s community.

The FTLC is for “all who teach on campus,” says FTLC Senior Director Michelle Soler. She notes that “the mission of the FTLC is to build upon networks of people at UNCG who teach and learn from each other.”

Whomever you teach, come be a part of the Faculty Center Takeover in the heart of campus, beside the Alumni House. There’ll be a Takeover the first Thursday of every month this year.
