The Faculty Teaching & Learning Commons at UNCG inaugurated a Fellows program in the spring semester 2013. Three of the new Fellows this fall are faculty of the University Libraries. These talented professionals will bring insights to our campus culture and will work to create opportunities as our university meets the challenges of teaching and learning in the twenty-first century.
