Music Department to Conduct Annual Piano Sale

During the past academic year, the Department of Music has had access to first-class standard and digital pianos through an association with the Rockley Family Foundation.

To perpetuate this program, these instruments, along with those provided other institutions, will be sold Friday through Sunday, Aug. 7 - 9, at the Robinson Hall for the Performing Arts. Individuals can schedule appointments to attend a "pre-sale" on Friday and Saturday by calling 704-687-1999; a final day sale will be from 12:00 - 5:00 PM, Sunday.

A large selection of grand, baby grand, digital player grand and digital pianos will be available from a number of manufacturers, including Steinway and Sons, Yamaha, Kawai, Cable Nelson, Story and Clark, Pearl River, Disklavier and Clavinova. Most instruments are less than a year old and are tuned and ready to go and include a full factory warranty. Click here for additional information about the sale.

Literacy Faculty Ranked Among Nation's Best

The College of Education’s literacy professors are among the most prolific scholars in the country in their field, according to a recent study.

Published in the journal Reading Psychology, the article looked at the productivity of literacy faculty nationwide from 2006 to 2012. The rankings were based on the number of times professors appeared in nine prominent research journals, adjusted for the size of the literacy faculty at the particular college.

UNC Charlotte came in at 21st in the country, besting the likes of the University of Tennessee and the University of South Carolina and ranking just behind Vanderbilt and the University of Florida.
