Each gift makes a difference
In his 2017 “State of the Campus” address, Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam Jr. said UNCG is poised to enter an “era of Giant Steps,” anchored through transformation—student transformation, knowledge transformation and regional transformation. A university that recognizes its role in the shared place and fate of the city, state and nation, UNCG is ready to step boldly into the public spotlight as a top school of choice in the Southeast.
The ongoing generosity of alumni, corporations, foundations and friends worldwide creates access to excellence and opportunity for students, faculty, staff and the greater community. With 816 full-time faculty and 277 part-time faculty and lecturers, UNCG provides our students some of the best mentors and educators in the nation. Through teaching, service and research, our faculty members prepare students to live remarkable lives of personal success and impact every day; expand UNCG’s mission of access and opportunity; and make astounding discoveries in their fields. Faculty First Summer Excellence Awards—part of the Faculty First Program housed in the Office of the Provost—allow faculty to pursue research or creative projects during the summer months. Awards of $5000 give them the opportunity to hire research assistants for case studies, to travel to national and international archives for in-depth research and to complete monographs centered on new, compelling arguments and ideas. Donor support of the Faculty First Program ensures UNCG’s best and brightest faculty members remain at the top of their field and bring the benefits of their experiences back to their students.
