UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

A few deadlines approach

As the semester winds down, here are some deadlines to note:

The UNCG Leadership Institute is designed to provide staff, faculty and administrators with a significant, year-long opportunity to increase their leadership skills and accelerate their own leadership performance and readiness. The program is focused on emerging leaders. It will cover important topics in leadership, but also provide participants with the opportunity to engage in action learning through the development of a project to solve an institutional issue or problem with guidance from a coaching mentor. The deadline for applications is Dec. 8, 2014. The application materials – and full information – may be found at leadershipinstitute.uncg.edu.

It’s the time of year for nominations for the Gladys Strawn Bullard Award. This prestigious award honors faculty, staff, and students who provide outstanding leadership and service to the university. Online Bullard nomination material are at https://uncg.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_3pXNjdgjFyAOdN3. Full information is at http://web.uncg.edu/hrs/PolicyManuals/StaffManual/Section12/Gladys_Strawn_Bullard/. The deadline for submitting nominations is Jan. 16, 2015. If you have any questions, please contact Gwen Evans, committee chair, at 334-5009 or gdevans2@uncg.edu.

The deadline for the Staff Excellence Award has been extended to Dec. 10. A $1,000 award will be presented to two deserving permanent SPA or EPA non-teaching faculty employees who are in good standing, and have been employed at UNCG for at least two years as of the nomination deadline (Nominations are to be sent to c/o Jennie Rikkola, 116 Moore Nursing Bldg.). Staff, faculty, supervisors, administrators and/or students may make nominations for this award. Full details and the form are at http://www.uncg.edu/staff.groups/senate/Senate_Committees/Staff_Recognition/excellence/

Finally, while the deadline has passed, it’s not too late to make a donation for the UNCG SECC campaign. The SECC helps more than 1,000 charitable organizations in our region and state. UNCG is only about $1,500 short of its $200,000 goal (as of Nov. 25). For more information, visit UNCG’s SECC web site at https://secc.wp.uncg.edu. All donations are appreciated.
