    The UNC System Drives NASCAR in More Ways Than One

    Memorial Day weekend is in the rearview. NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600 has crossed the finish line. After 400 laps, the checkered flag has waved, and the cars are now still. The roar has grown silent … for the time being.

    The fumes have dissipated and the ringing in the ears will eventually subside, but something significant will linger: fuel for North Carolina’s economy. Several UNC System institutions are delivering the innovation that helps steer this fast-moving economic sector to the inside lane.

    Festivals Highlight the Diversity of Arts Engagement Across North Carolina

    On April evenings in Durham, those lucky enough to have a ticket will catch some magical moments at the Durham Arts Council. A chanteuse’s sultry voice might float through the dusk, pleading to a distant lover. A trumpet’s blare might liven up the otherwise sleepy night. Vibrant Latin rhythms might transform a lackadaisical shuffle into a scorching dance.

    Jazz. It brings the city to life in more ways than one.

  • Symposium Highlights Innovative Uses of Teaching Technologies

    Professors can have a difficult time planning to co-teach a course with a colleague in another department: orchestrating schedules, arranging funding, coordinating lecture slots, developing complementary lesson plans.
