Visiting Scholars

We congratulate and thank our faculty sponsors who have helped to bring these scholars to the university. Scholar sponsors are individual faculty members at UNCG who collaborate with the scholars on research and teaching. Sponsors work with their departments, their Dean and the Provost's office to invite scholars to their respective departments to work with them for several months to several years, depending on the scope of the research and/or teaching project. Their dedication to internationalization helps the International Programs Center bring in new scholars every semester.

This summer, the International Programs Center welcomed the following visiting scholars to UNCG:

Huang Zhu (China), Department of History, Charles Bolton sponsor
Susanna Saari (Finland), Department of Biology, Stan Faeth sponsor 
Maria Cordoba Solano (Spain), Department of Romance Languages, Carmen Sotomayor sponsor
Gary Lim (Singpore), Department of English, Jennifer Keith sponsor
Sami Yli-Piipari (Finland) - Fulbright Scholar, Department of Kinesiology, Catherine Ennis sponsor
