This year, faculty and staff will notice a little something different about our annual awards. In order to give more focus to the incredible work being done across our institution, UNCG will now have two celebrations to honor faculty and staff achievements. On April 17 at 4 p.m. in the EUC Auditorium, Provost Dunn will host our Faculty Awards ceremony, honoring the innovations and accomplishments of our teacher-scholars. This will include celebrating our state, UNC System, and UNCG-specific award winners. This event, as well as a reception afterwards in the Alumni House, is open to everyone on campus.
Then, on May 20, we will honor our staff members with our first Staff Appreciation Day. This day will celebrate staff who have received departmental awards, Staff Stars, and Staff Excellence awards from the past year, and honor those who have exhibited devotion to duty and service to the campus community and beyond. Their stories will be shared across the campus community. We invite colleagues to join Chancellor Gilliam and the awardees to a campus-wide celebration that will be held on Monday, May 20, 2:30-4:30 p.m. More details to come!
“Recognizing excellence is an important element of our culture and essential to inspiring our team to keep taking Giant Steps forward,” said Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. “Our faculty and staff are all working toward a common goal on behalf of our University, community, and students. We want to take the time to celebrate outstanding work and high-impact achievement across our entire organization.”
