Nominations for SOE Commencement speakers due Friday

Commencement will soon be here and we are beginning our search for our student speakers at the ceremony. We are calling on you to make nominations for seniors and graduate students who will be graduating this year who you think have compelling stories to tell and aren’t afraid to speak in front of a crowd!
Please send the names and email addresses of your nominees to by Friday, March 3. Nominees will be asked to write a draft of their proposed speech and deliver it to a small committee who will select the final speakers.

Nominations for SOE Alumni Awards close today!

We are thrilled to announce we will seek nominations for our alumni awards not only from faculty and staff this year, but from community members, friends of the SOE, and yes, alumni! We encourage anyone in our community to submit nominations for deserving classmates and friends, and we also encourage self nominations. The four awards we give are Early Career, Distinguished Career, Outstanding Achievement, and Distinguished Service.

We are accepting nominations through the end of today. You may find a description of the awards and submit nominations through this form.

The awards will be given at the SOE commencement on May 12 at the Greensboro Coliseum, where the winners will be members of the platform party.


Working Papers in Education Workshops

Hello graduate students in the School of Education at UNCG! You are invited to attend workshops throughout the semester to learn more about all facets of publishing in academic journals in general and within the UNCG Working Papers in Education Journal specifically. On Tuesday, March 7 from 3-5pm in SOEB 301, we will discuss author and editor relations and how to give and respond to feedback. It’s a great opportunity to gain experience with publishing and get to know students across different departments in the School of Education. Hope to see you there and contact Dr. Jamie Schissel <> with any questions.
About the journal: Working Papers in Education is an annual, peer-reviewed, online journal managed by graduate students of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s School of Education. It is committed to providing a venue for UNCG School of Education graduate students to share their research and contribute to academic dialogue. The journal publishes full-length conceptual, methodological, and empirical papers in education research. See <> for more information, including the articles published in 2015 and 2016.
