We keep students at the forefront of every program we design, every administrative decision we make and every educational opportunity we embrace. We balance our support of students by challenging them to make informed choices based on sound rationale. We foster students' abilities to think critically and solve problems, which will serve them well after they graduate. We create a campus environment which focuses on success at UNCW and beyond.

We promote diversity by cultivating a respectful and inclusive community in which myriad identities, perspectives, ideas, and beliefs contribute to academic rigor, self-exploration, and an understanding of others. We encourage students to broaden their views, to be open to new experiences, and to apply their education toward addressing social, political, economic and environmental challenges confronting our communities.

We are committed to ethical practices, civility, and accountability in our work. We operate and educate our students in an atmosphere of openness and are committed to the highest professional standards in all endeavors.

We engage students, faculty, staff, and community partners with mutual trust, unconditional regard, and support. We treat each other with dignity, respect, and appreciation. Modeling these behaviors, we help prepare students to approach life and work in a collaborative manner.

We emphasize the critical importance of engagement as a means of promoting personal growth and learning in all aspects of students' lives. We approach engagement as a process rather than a product, with the intention of building community to foster intellectual curiosity, civic responsibility, leadership, and respect for others. We use the total campus environment and the broader community to educate our students and help them understand the benefit of experiential learning.
