Spotlight on Faculty events exemplify the quality of teaching and diversity of research at Carolina. Developed in collaboration with the General Alumni Association, these sessions feature UNC-Chapel Hill faculty discussing their latest scholarship, how they teach it, and how it changes their classrooms. This fall we feature recent teaching award winners. Come find out what’s happening in the University’s most exciting and creative classes.

Spotlight on Faculty events take place on Tuesdays at Flyleaf Books, 752 MLK Jr. Blvd., in Chapel Hill. All run from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. There are no preparatory readings for Spotlight on Scholars events.

Program Tuition: Tuition is $20 for everyone paying at the door. Register ahead of time and pay $18.00 per program or pay only $8 if you are a member of the UNC General Alumni Association (GAA).
