UNCG Campus Weekly

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

Today’s Faculty Forum: sustainability and student ratings of instruction

The March 22 Faculty Forum offers two topics:

At 3 p.m. the Sustainability Council will host “Embedding Sustainability at UNCG,” which will feature a brief presentation on ways that faculty, staff and students can get involved in sustainability efforts on campus. Topics include applying for funds through UNCG’s Green Fund and opportunities to serve as an academic sustainability coordinator or a sustainability faculty fellow for 2017-18 and beyond, as well as general strategies for embedding sustainability across campus and in the community.

Marianne LeGreco, faculty senate liaison to UNCG’s Sustainability Council, will lead a presentation about the Council’s recent work, and  she will take questions and comments about these efforts. For questions regarding the upcoming forum please email Dr. Marianne LeGreco (melegrec@uncg.edu).

At 4 p.m., David Teachout, director of the UTLC, and Carl Lashley, senator, will continue the discussion of a possible university-wide “Student Rating of Instruction” instrument that began at the March 1 Faculty Senate meeting. They will summarize the feedback they’ve received to date, and hear more comments and suggestions.

All faculty are invited to contribute to campus initiatives, and to discuss the issues they address. Attendees are welcome to attend any portion of one or both segments.
