News Items from UNC Greensboro

Tal Blevins ’95 is the owner of Machete, a restaurant recently named one of the Top 20 in the country by Yelp and honored as a semifinalist by the James Beard Foundation. His background includes 20 years as a tech journalist, and he can trace his multidimensional success back to his UNCG experience in the geography program. And it’s the stories, the places, and the flavors of the world that inspire him.

Nominations are now open and faculty, staff, students, and alumni may take part. To recognize outstanding teaching and demonstrate our commitment to teaching excellence, the University presents three awards to UNCG faculty members every year, while the UNC System presents an annual award for teaching excellence. The deadline to submit a nomination is September 2.
