Find Your Way Here: Eric Laws

Eric Laws, a PhD student at the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, studies bacterial cells and data storage. His mentors at UNC Greensboro have inspired him to pursue his greatest passion: communicating scientific ideas through teaching. “To see that little light that goes on in people’s eyes when they understand something is pretty cool,” he says. “I want to be a teacher that students come to, and then leave with more knowledge and less stress.”

Find Your Way Here

You see it every day. In the hard work, inventive ideas and powerful collaborations that define our communities. In schools, hospitals and businesses. The everyday and extraordinary achievements that add up to the remarkable impact of UNC Greensboro.

It is true today as it has been for over 125 years: UNC Greensboro is relentlessly focused on helping each student unleash their potential and make a meaningful impact with their lives, in our community and around the world, every day.

Dean Sherine Obare Congratulates the Class of 2020
