The morning began with Chancellor Gilliam and President Spellings signing Performance Agreements that further align the goals and strategies of UNCG and the UNC System around key priorities and metrics.
After a welcome reception by Chancellor Gilliam, the board explored the Union Square campus where they learned more about the UNCG School of Nursing. They saw two interactive simulations while touring the building with Dean Robin Remsburg, members of the faculty and a number of nursing students.
They then toured the sites of the two UNCG Millennial Campuses, including the site of the soon-to-be-constructed Nursing and Instructional Building.
UNCG students also met with BOG members and President Spellings for round-table discussions centered upon “UNCG’s Tenacious Focus on Student Success.” Students discussed their experiences with various UNCG programs that have prepared them for collegiate success, with university retention initiatives, and with experiential learning abroad and at home.
Before departing, BOG members and President Spellings were treated to a brief College of Visual and Performing Arts performance, and enjoyed a University Archives UNCG 125th pop-up exhibit.
