Chancellor’s Learning Scholars

The University of North Georgia is participating in the Chancellor’s Learning Scholars program initiated by the University System of Georgia to provide additional faculty development opportunities across the state. Five faculty from UNG were chosen as Chancellor’s Learning Scholars (CLS) and will lead a Faculty Learning Communities (FLC). These groups will share ideas regarding teaching and learning and meet regularly for at least one semester. When the program concludes, participants will be able to pinpoint a change or innovation they have made in their classrooms as a result of their participation.
