The UNC Charlotte Green and Gold Travelers Society is a rare and exciting program that makes unique travel opportunities available to prominent friends and benefactors of the UNC Charlotte community. Periodically the GGTS organizes a small group trip to an international destination. Each trip includes special activities and interaction with a prominent UNC Charlotte scholar.
A recent trip to Israel included lectures and a tour of an archeological dig guided by Dr. James Tabor, a world renowned biblical archaeologist and Professor and Chair of the UNC Charlotte Department of Religious Studies.
A trip to England, the theme of which was "England's Storied Past," included lectures and a historical tour guided by Dr. Andrew James Hartley. Dr. Hartley is the Robinson Distinguished Professor of Shakespeare Studies in UNC Charlotte’s Department of Theatre, the director of the University’s Shakespeare in Action Centre, and the editor of the Johns Hopkins performance journal, Shakespeare Bulletin. As A. J. Hartley, he is also a New York Times bestselling novelist who writes mystery/thriller and young adult adventure for Penguin and fantasy for Tor.
The next trip is in the planning stages now, so please check back soon for more information.
The UNC Charlotte Green and Gold Travelers Society is a collaborative effort of the Office of the Chancellor, the Office of University Development, and the Office of International Programs.
