Visitors looking for native plants will be able to take advantage of what should be an exceptional selection. The Botanical Gardens’ staff will be on hand to answer questions. Parking will be available near the McMillan Greenhouse (attendants will be on hand to direct).

Sale hours on Friday and Saturday are 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM at the McMillan Greenhouse. All sale proceeds support Botanical Gardens operations.

Professor Receives Award from Charlotte Chamber

Victor Chen, assistant professor of international management in the Belk College of Business, has received the 2015 Young Professional (YP) Educator Award from the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals (YPs).

Chen received the YP Educator Award, which recognizes an individual who is a dedicated teacher, professor or administrator who has made a tremendous impact in the educational institution and community in which they serve. Nominees not only contribute to the academic success of their students but help to prepare students for a successful life as productive citizens in society.

At UNC Charlotte, he teaches both undergraduate and M.B.A. international business courses. His M.B.A. teaching adopts an engaged model, in which he advises his students to provide free consulting reports to major international business players in Charlotte. "As an educator in Charlotte’s urban research business school, my core mission is to make positive change in the business community through my teaching and research. My work helps to identify the gap between the knowledge and practice of international business and find solutions to business dilemmas faced every day," Chen said.
