The Road to Sankofa

Each Semester we honor graduating African American seniors with a celebration we call Senior Sankofa. The West African concept of Sankofa is symbolized by a bird that is looking back over its shoulder while moving forward - remembering and recognizing its past in order to progress into the future. The road to Sankofa begins for each African American student at UNCW the moment they accept our offer of admission and become a part of the UNCW family.
