Featured this week: Dr. Jerry Pubantz – Dr. Julia Mendez – Dr. Heidi Gazelle
Dr. Jerry Pubantz, director of the Lloyd International Honors College, has joined the Deans Council with the new title Dean of the Lloyd International Honors College. The change in title “reflects the growth of the LIHC and its standing as a signature undergraduate program at UNCG,” said Dr. David H. Perrin, provost and executive vice chancellor.
Dr. Julia Mendez (Psychology) has been named a Core Research Advisor for the Center for Early Care and Education Research: Dual Language Learners (CECER-DLL). “Dual Language Learners” describes a heterogeneous population of children who are learning at least one other language, typically their first language, in addition to English. The CECER-DLL project is a cooperative agreement awarded to the FPG Child Development Institute of UNC-Chapel Hill. It is funded by the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in collaboration with the Office of Head Start (OHS) and Child Care Bureau (CCB). The mission of this center is to improve the state of knowledge and measurement in research with DLL children and families and to identify and advance the strategies in early care and education programming for this population.
Dr. Heidi Gazelle (Psychology) has accepted an invitation to serve as a Consulting Editor for the journal “Child Development.”
