The spring of edition of UNCG Research Magazine – the university’s semiannual publication that explores some of the most impactful scholarship across campus – is now available online.

The magazine’s feature stories cover plant growth experiments on the International Space Station, the local impact of the Center for Community-Engaged Design and a 25-year effort at UNCG to equip kids for success through sports.

As noted by Vice Chancellor Terri L. Shelton in the magazine introduction, many of the articles in the publication share a common thread:

“The rings of ancient alpine larch trace the rise of global warming. Our responses to a 1906 earthquake and 2005 hurricane offer insight into how we will face coming natural disasters. A previous generation’s exposure to BPA dictates a medaka fish’s reproductive health. … In each story, the same lesson: to build a better future, we must understand our past.”

The magazine’s interactive website includes feature-length and shorter articles, faculty and student profiles, image galleries and more. Readers can also download PDF versions of the current and previous issues or request print copies.
