UNCG Gen Ed this summer

UNCG has been selected to participate in the early-June Institute on General Education and Assessment, organized by The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U).

UNCG’s team includes Dr. Jonathan P. Zarecki, Associate Professor of Classical Studies and Chair of UNCG’s General Education Council; Dr. Jodi Pettazzoni, Director of Accreditation and Assessment; Dr. Bryan Terry, Associate Provost for Enrollment Management; Prof. Regina McCoy Pulliam, AP Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies for the Department of Public Health Education; Dr. Susanne Rinner, Associate Professor of German Studies and Faculty Coordinator of The Global Village; and Nancy Bucknall, Director of the College of Arts & Sciences Advising.

AAC&U institutes offer campus teams a time and place for sustained collaborative work on a project of importance to their campus along with a curriculum focused on important trends, research and best practices, and a resident faculty of educational experts.

“We’re looking forward to engaging in conversations about how our General Education Program can best reflect and reinforce our university identity, and best serve our unique student population,” Zarecki noted. “We hope to make UNCG a leader in shaping the process of General Education revision at a time of great opportunity, with changes in institutional leadership and the State of North Carolina becoming more involved with General Education throughout the UNC system.”
