UNCG History alum Dr. Karen Hawkins (PhD, 2013) talks with Frank Stasio of North Carolina Public Radio about her book, "Everybody's Problem: The War on Poverty in Eastern North Carolina."

Lyndon B. Johnson declared a “War on Poverty” in his 1964 State of the Union address, and its effectiveness has been debated ever since. In big cities like

According to Google's analysis of its own most successful employees, broad and transferable skills in writing, speaking, and creative problem solving ultimately prove more valuable than mere STEM content knowledge. Chalk up another score in favor of the liberal arts.

From the author's conclusion: "Broad learning skills are the key to long-term, satisfying, productive careers. What helps you thrive in a changing world isn’t rocket science. It may just well be social science, and, yes, even the humanities and the arts that contribute to making you not just workforce ready but world ready."

The top traits of success at Google sound more like what one gains as an English or theater major than as a programmer.

Colleges and universities aren’t big fans of the Republican tax plan. Then the GOP came out with its plan to overhaul higher education.

UNCG Associate Professor of History Emily Levine co-wrote this op-ed published in the New York Times this morning.

New taxes are not the answer. A radical reorientation of their mission is.

If UNC System President Margaret Spellings says this disaster of a tax bill is bad for undergraduate and graduate students, then surely UNCG Graduate Student Association,The University of North Carolina at Greensboro - UNCG agrees......

Margaret Spellings, president of the University of North Carolina and a former U.S. secretary of education, writes she is "deeply concerned by provisions in both the House and Senate tax-reform bills."

Legislation on the fast track in Congress would have damaging consequences by discouraging private philanthropy, ramping up taxes on students, and undermining university research and innovation.

This semester, Dr. Filene's "Creating a Public Past" class (HIS 317) visited Elsewhere -- a museum inside of a former thrift store--as part of the course's focus on history beyond the university. Having learned about 17th-century "cabinets of curiosity" or "wonder cabinets," they got to see a wondrous 21st-century example in downtown Greensboro!
