The UNCG Strategic Plan 2009-2014 calls for integrating international and intercultural experiences and perspectives into teaching, research and creativity, and services (#5, approved April 16, 2010). Such experiences and perspectives should ensure that faculty, staff, and students have the requisite attitudes and knowledge to interact appropriately and effectively in a culturally diverse global context (#5.4, 2010).
Since 2006 the UNCG Libraries have reached out to international scholars and visiting librarians by giving them the opportunity to network with library faculty and staff and by offering them a venue for sharing their experiences and best practices through lectures and presentations.
