UNC Greensboro’s spring 2022 research magazine is now available in print and online.
This issue is a hands-in-the dirt, invigorating collection of in-depth stories that showcases UNCG impact at local, national, and global levels.
Our cover story features a five-pronged set of university-community collaborations that tackle food security, democracy, and social justice issues – with the end goal of cultivating more resilient communities.
Also in this issue: Young astrophysicists are on the rise, a computer scientist prepares augmented reality interfaces for a safer, better future, and a 17th-century literature scholar illuminates UNCG’s world-class George Herbert collection.
Closer to home, graduate students work with refugee communities, and kinesiology and peace and conflict studies researchers bring restorative justice to a local high school, and much more.
What makes these accomplishments possible? As VC for Research and Engagement Shelton tells us in the magazine introduction, it’s all about partnerships – a lifeline that runs through UNCG research and scholarship. Faculty, undergraduates, and graduate students play critical roles in the generation of new knowledge by crossing disciplinary boundaries, collaborating with community experts, and translating their work into real-world impact.
