News Items from UNC Greensboro

Here are some things to make a note of, for the new semester:

The 2019 student research expos will be held on the same week – on back-to-back days. The 2019 Graduate Research & Creativity Expo will be Wednesday, April 3, 2019. The Thomas Undergraduate Research and Creativity Expo will be the next day, Thursday April 4, 2019. More information on these two expos will be in Campus Weekly in the next two weeks.

The Excellence Awards for faculty and staff will have two ceremonies instead of one. One ceremony will be dedicated to staff, one ceremony dedicated to faculty. The Faculty Award Ceremony will take place on Wednesday, April 17, at 4 p.m. in the EUC Auditorium. (The General Faculty Meeting that day will begin at 2 p.m. in the EUC Auditorium.) A reception will be held in the Alumni House, Virginia Dare Room, immediately after the awards ceremony.

As reported in last week’s CW, the Staff Excellence Awards Ceremony will be on April 25, 2019.

The UNCG Science Everywhere festival, which draws thousands of people to campus each spring, will be April 13, 2019. Activities from departments and programs on campus are being solicited for the festival. See how to participate.

Reviews will be “paperless.” UNCG’s new e-Performance performance management program is designed to be easier and mostly paperless. As noted in an earlier CW, the due dates for both SHRA and EHRA Non-Faculty performance plans have been extended to January 31, 2019, to allow you additional time to complete the required tasks. The SHRA performance appraisal due date will remain March 31, 2019. EHRA Non-Faculty performance appraisals are due June 30, 2019.

Some key dates to be aware of:  

Feb. 21 marks the sixth annual Believe in the G – which will be a 24-hour celebration of Spartan pride for the entire campus community and beyond. (This info was updated to include correct 24-hr date, which is Feb. 21.)
