College of Arts & Sciences



UNCWednesday is a speaker’s series presented by the College of Arts and Sciences at UNCW that provides faculty to discuss, with the local and regional community, a range of issues from across our College. Each year we will draw upon scholarship in the areas of the Arts, Sciences, Humanities, and the Social Sciences to provide engaging lectures on topics within our fields. We hope to use our speakers series as a way to build an enlightened life for all who live in the Lower Cape Fear region.

RSVP's NOT required (General admission style seating)

Event Information
April 19

Joseph Pawlik, Dept. of Biology and Marine Biology,

“Chemical ecology of Sponges on Caribbean coral reefs.”

6pm - Location: Wrightsville Beach Room, Fisher Student Center 

7pm - Reception: Clocktower Lounge

For 2017-18 we will host four events during the year: Sept., October, February, and April. These dates are tentative. The idea is to hold the event every third Wednesday (based on the university schedule). We plan to reserve two additional times in the event of an emerging issue where a response from UNCW experts would be needed.

Each event includes a Speaker(s) talking about an area of research they do that has resonance with people in the community. The talk is about 45-60 minutes with a Q&A that may go an additional 15 minutes.
