Other Library Catalogs

From this page you may connect to other libraries using the World Wide Web search engine their system provides, or you may use the Z39.50 Search Engine of the Consortium's INNOPAC catalog, which allows you to search remote catalogs using a familiar interface.

Additionally, if you are a student or employee of one of the UNC Coastal Library Consortium institutions, you may initiate interlibrary loan requests for materials you find as a result of Z39.50 searches. WWW search engines, which are not part of the INNOPAC system, do not allow this feature.

University Awards

UNC Board of Governors Award for Teaching Excellence Established 1994-95 (ADMN Memo #343)

To underscore the importance of teaching and to encourage, identify, recognize, reward and support good teaching in the university, the Board of Governors created system-wide teaching awards designated "Board of Governors' Awards for Excellence in Teaching." One recipient is selected annually from each of the 16 constituent institutions of the University of North Carolina to receive a stipend and a citation. Nominations for the BOG are solicited in the first part of the fall semester. The winner receives a substantial financial award, serves as grand marshal for the spring commencement, and is the featured speaker for the winter commencement.

The Board of Governors' Nominee for Public Service

Each constituent institution in the UNC system selects a nominee for Excellence demonstrated in public service. Candidates for the UNCP nomination display sustained, distinguished, and superb achievement in University public service and outreach, and contribute to improving the quality of life of the citizens of North Carolina. The UNCP nominee also receives a substantial financial award. Nominations for the BOG in Public Service are solicited in the first part of the spring semester. This award was established in 2008.

Dial Awards

The Dial Awards were originally established with three categories, Excellence in Teaching, Scholarship and Creative Work, and Community service. In 1994 the Teaching award was discontinued with the establishment of the BOG and outstanding teaching awards.

Excellence in Academic Advising Award (BellSouth)

A 2004 grant from Bell South made the awards possible. When the award was first established, Chancellor Allen Meadors stated, "We have a lot of first generation college students, and advising can make the difference.”

Honorary Degrees

The honorary degree is a traditional means of the academic university to recognize distinguished individuals who have made significant contributions to the University over an extended period of time or whose outstanding personal or professional endeavors complement the University's role and mission. The university community must view candidates as unique, recognizable figures whose public recognition brings honor on the University of North Carolina at Pembroke

Peter B. Vaill Business Facultyship Award

The award was established by Eric B. Dent, Dean of the School of Business, and his wife Amy. They agreed to create an endowment to support an annual award for an outstanding business faculty member. The award will go to a faculty member who demonstrates outstanding teaching, scholarship and service to the University and exemplary organizational citizenship behavior. The name of the award is the Peter B. Vaill Facultyship Award.“ It is named after a professor who exemplifies the ideals of the award,” Dr. Dent said.

School of Education’s Distinguished Faculty Award

The Distinguished Faculty Award is presented to a faculty member from one of the five departments. This faculty member is recognized for contributions in the areas of teaching, scholarship and service. Accomplishments for which he/she is nominated must clearly exceed ordinary expectations and should clearly be acknowledged by peers and/or the broader public as outstanding contribution.

UNCP Distinguished Professor Award (1983-1994)

This award was established to honor faculty who displayed excellence in teaching, research, and service. A committee of faculty and students made the selection, appointed by Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. This award was superseded by the BOG.

UNCP Outstanding Teaching Award                              Established 1994

Outstanding teachers demonstrate enthusiasm and commitment to professional growth, are effective through clear course materials and presentations, varied instructional strategies, and suitable measures of student learning, while displaying skill in engaging student interest, challenging students, and eliciting high levels of student achievement. The Faculty Awards committee awards up to five outstanding teaching awards each year. Nominees for the outstanding teaching awards are solicited in the first part of the spring semester.

Outstanding Teaching Award for Part Time Faculty

This award was created in Spring 2010 to recognize the achievements and successes of the University’s part-time faculty. It is given to up to one part-time faculty member each year.

The Lumbee Collection

The Lumbee Collection is a compilation of newspaper clippings, books, and journal articles written by and about the Lumbee Indians of Robeson County including the story of Henry Berry Lowry and his wife, Rhoda. The Lumbee Tribe is the largest group of Indians east of the Mississippi River. The Lumbee live primarily in Robeson, Scotland and Hoke counties; however, for economic reasons many relocated over the years to larger cities such as Charlotte, Greensboro and Raleigh, North Carolina and Detroit, Michigan and Baltimore, Maryland. Pembroke is recognized as the home of the Lumbee. In 1885 the State of North Carolina recognized the Lumbee as the Croatan Indians of Robeson County. At the same time it allowed for the establishment of a separate school system for Indian children. In 1887 the state established the Croatan Indian Normal School which is known today as The University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
