Kimberly Buch from the Department of Psychology in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences is among the 17 recipients of the UNC Board of Governors Award for Teaching Excellence.
Established by the Board of Governors in 1994 to underscore the importance of teaching and to reward good teaching across the University, the BOG Awards for Excellence in Teaching are given annually to a tenured faculty member from each UNC campus.
Buch defines her teaching goals by her ability to become a "facilitator of learning" for her students. Since joining UNC Charlotte in 1987, this philosophy has been a driving force of her research, teaching and service practices. Click here to read the full article.
UNC Charlotte will present "Ruined and Rebuilt Landscapes: Memories of the War in Bosnia," a series of lectures, movies, discussions with survivors and cultural gatherings, from March 17 through April 2.
The exhibition will feature paintings by British artist Laura Buxton of ruined buildings in Bosnia-Herzegovina, completed in 1994 and 1995 in the immediate aftermath of the war. Each painting is accompanied by additional information and photographs depicting the rebuilding of these sites, as well as the ongoing conflicts surrounding them.
Related programs will examine the personal and collective memories of the conflict and how it shaped people’s lives, ethnic relations, cultural practices and the built environment in the last two decades. The focus is on the destructiveness of war but also on survival and rebuilding. Click here for more information.
