Joyful students enjoying our campus beauty

Join Us!

This new lecture aims to expose the campus community to diverse perspectives from experts and leaders and encourage the community to explore a wide range of ideas. The name reflects the university’s motto, Discere Aude, which is often translated as “dare to learn.”

Aswani Volety: Answering The Call To Serve


Message from Chancellor Volety

Nothing can match the feel of the UNCW campus at the start of a new academic year. With classes now in session, we have welcomed more than 5,000 new students – first-years, transfers and graduate students – to the university. As always, we are starting the semester off in Seahawk style, with more than a month of UNCWelcome activities.
