Student Opportunities at the CIE

While the CIE often functions independently of UNCW, we love students and we love to see them taking advantage of the accommodations here for them. Most students don’t realize just how many resume-boosting and career-launching opportunities are available on our premises.

The program, known as Bunker Labs EPIC—the Entrepreneurial Program for Innovation and Collaboration—is a ten-week course with three-hour sessions that cover the building blocks of business creation.

Friday Feature: Dr. Debbie Powell and the Revolution of Teaching Writing

“Ten or fifteen years ago,” Dr. Debbie Powell explains, “I watched undergraduate students who were tutoring children during my methods class. And I wanted them to improve that tutoring by assessing their students very early in the experience.”

This was the beginning of Uni-SPIRE, although the company itself has only existed since 2011.
