Tess Stogner’s first experience living outside of North Carolina was a country that didn’t even speak her language. Last fall, she stepped outside of her comfort zone to fully embrace spending the semester in Montpellier, France. “Trying to acclimate to a vastly different culture shows you what you’re capable of, and I’ve realized I have that ability to start from scratch and find my footing in a short span of time, which has allowed me to explore my interests with more confidence.”

Recent discoveries by a team of specialists and students at Huqoq in Israel’s Galilee, led by @reliunc professor Jodi Magness, shed new light on the life and culture of an ancient Jewish village. The new mosaics contain figures and objects with Hebrew inscriptions, including one of a scene from Numbers 13:23, showing two spies sent by Moses to explore Canaan carrying a pole with a cluster of grapes. Magness and a team of UNC students and staff have been involved in the annual archaeological digs since 2012. Learn more about this year’s discovery at a link in our bio!

Of the 1,000 officers who apply to become professors of military science, the U.S. Army only selects 16. Shane Doolan is Commander of the UNC U.S. Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps and Chair of the department of military science at Carolina, and he has a direct role in shaping the next generation of students into the leaders of tomorrow.

Carolina is rising as a global university, in part to its collaboration with six strategic partners around the world. Here, exchange students spell out Carolina in front of the Singapore skylines. The College of Arts & Sciences entered into a partnership with the National University of Singapore’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences in 2003.

A grant from the Clare Boothe Luce Program supports women in chemistry with graduate fellowships and mentoring program. “I envision this program as a way to address some of these ‘leaky pipeline’ issues, where women have the goal to pursue a Ph.D. but then decide on alternative careers, frequently because they don’t have role models or a support structure. We want to fix those leaks,” said Jillian Dempsey, assistant professor of chemistry.
