Student Union to Display Study Abroad Photography
Students who participate in study abroad trips through the University could submit their photographs from overseas for the annual "Study Abroad Photo Exhibit." Winners and honorable mentions in this competition will be displayed Sunday, May 1, through Saturday, May 14, in the Student Union Art Gallery.
Photographs submitted by students will be judged in these categories: defining moment, landscape, portrait and self-portrait. The exhibit also will include entries in a non-judged category, traveling 49ers.
"We hope that those who visit the exhibit will have a better understanding of the world that our UNC Charlotte students are exposed to and the impact that the experience has had on the students personally, academically and professionally," said Beth Lorenz, assistant director of international programs. "Through the visual stories of these students, we hope both the community and other UNC Charlotte students appreciate the impact of study abroad and for students to consider this adventure as well."
Charlotte Teachers Institute Welcomes 104 Fellows
The Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) welcomed 104 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) teachers as CTI Fellows in its innovative, interdisciplinary seminars for 2016.
"This year’s CTI Fellows represent a wide range of teachers in CMS, from new to veteran, pre-K to 12th grade and physics to digital art and language arts," said CTI Director Scott Gartlan. "We create important growth opportunities for CMS teacher-leaders looking to deepen their knowledge base and impact the lives of their students."
In each seminar, 13 CMS teachers (CTI Fellows) and a professor work closely on an in-depth study of a topic, with each teacher creating a new curriculum designed for his or her own students. CTI Fellows receive full access to both Davidson College and UNC Charlotte resources, as well as family memberships to Discovery Place. Upon completion, each fellow is awarded a $1,500 stipend and continuing education credits.
