UNCG Cares Presentation

Just a reminder that Dr. Brett Carter, Dean of Students, will be presenting a workshop titled UNCG Cares: Our Critical Responders, next Wednesday, March 2nd from 2-3pm in Jackson 177A.

This specialized UNCG Cares training is designed for frontline staff and their supervisors. The training will help staff members identify individuals, particularly students, in distress and those who may become a risk, appropriately handle the individual and create a safety plan for themselves and their office. We encourage supervisors to attend this UNCG Cares training with their frontline staff members in order to create the safety plan for their office and to spend one-on-one time with their staff addressing safety concerns.

If you are interested in attending this event, please sign up HERE.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Collaboration Between the University Libraries and Google

Starting today, over 200 records from UNCG's University Archives can be viewed online by people around the world due to a new partnership between the Google Cultural Institute and the UNCG University Libraries. Staff in the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives and the Libraries' Electronic Resources and Information Technologies departments uploaded the records and built the online exhibit "African Americans at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, 1892-1971."

Check out the full story on the UNCG Special Collections & University Archives Blog.
