College of Arts & Sciences


Each year faculty members draw upon scholarship in the areas of the Arts, Sciences, Humanities, and Social Sciences to provide meaningful lectures and discussions. Community engagement is one of the University's highest priorities, and this lecture series fosters dialogue and the exchange of ideas between UNCW faculty and Cape Fear area residents. 

UNCWednesday lectures are held the third Wednesday of each month as permitted by the University calendar. Each event includes an hour long discussion and a Q&A session, as well as a reception following the lecture. RSVPs NOT required (general admission seating); parking is available in Eaton Plaza.

Event Schedule for 2017-18

*All events will begin at 6pm and take place in James Hall (Eaton Plaza next to Trask Coliseum) unless otherwise noted
