The Rebecca A. Lloyd Distinguished Resident Fellow

Central to the mission and work of Lloyd International Honors College are the talented UNCG faculty who teach Honors courses and work closely with our students as research mentors. The Rebecca A. Lloyd Distinguished Resident Fellow (formerly the Chancellor’s Resident Fellow) teaches three seminars in the Honors College (one in the Fall and two in the Spring), delivers a public lecture in the Fall, and helps build the life of the Honors community over the course of the academic year. Fellows receive a $3,000 research award to be used during the year of the Fellowship, and have their own private office in North Spencer Residence Hall, with printing and copying access. The Fellowship is open to all full-time UNCG faculty.

Lloyd International Honors College is pleased to announce the Rebecca A. Lloyd Distinguished Residential Fellow for 2017-2018: Dr. Jill Bender, History.

To the extent that my gift could help world peace come about, I’m happy to be making it.”
