To UNC Faculty: Message from John Stephens, CES Director
Dear CES faculty affiliates at UNC-CH: The Center for Global Initiatives (formerly UCIS) maintains a database of our campus international expertise. The database can help you connect with colleagues across campus and around the world and it is important to us at CES as we draw from this database for our grant proposals and research projects.
If you include an international perspective in your teaching or research or if you have international experiences, you should be profiled in the database. However, we need to ensure that your profile is current, especially in terms of your research and publications. I ask that you take a minute to update it. At the site (www.unc.edu/fie), click the 'login' button near the top right corner of the screen and on the next page enter your UNC onyen and password. In most cases, such an update will only require posting your recent publications.
To encourage you, we are giving away $25 gift certificates to the Global Cup Cafe in the new Global Education Center. For the next three Fridays, we will randomly draw 5 faculty who updated their bios in the past week.
I encourage you to explore this database (www.unc.edu/fie) to appreciate the depth of international expertise at UNC and hope that it is a useful resource for your own work. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
