Mission of Taking Flight:
By participating in the “Taking Flight” program, graduating seniors will articulate and make meaning of their UNCW experience. While engaged in this program, students will make meaning of their personal accomplishments, reflect on their learning experiences and achievements and be prepared to apply them after leaving UNCW, carry forward UNCW values and Seahawk pride, and build affiliation with the institution as future alumni. Completing this program will help students depart UNCW with confidence in their personal accomplishments and with pride about their alma mater.
“Taking Flight” is a senior capstone program that was generated in August 2011. Charged by Vice Chancellor Pat Leonard, the program consists of a three workshop series for graduating students centered on making meaning of their UNCW experiences and their transition into the post graduate world.
