Arts at UNCW

Student Engagement

The Office of the Arts offers UNCW students a variety of ways to become involved with our programming. If your student organization is interested in participating in one of our events or would like to partner with the Office of the Arts, please contact our Student Engagement & Internship Coordinator, Kyle Kissinger.


The Office of the Arts internship program provides students with a suite of responsibilities across the spectrum of arts administration and concert production and management. These include marketing and public relations, artist services, production tracking, and contract management. The positions report to various staff members in UNCW’s Office of the Arts as assigned. Internships run year-round, offering students the ability to work during the Lumina Festival of the Arts and the UNCW Presents season.


UNCW students are able to serve as volunteers at events in Kenan Auditorium, Mainstage Theater, Beckwith Recital Hall, and the SRO Theater. Volunteers are the first point of contact for patrons upon their arrival at every show. Volunteers handle many of the logistical tasks that allow our events to operate smoothly, while also serving as a resource for patrons. The range of responsibilities for volunteers varies depending on the nature of the event. Learn more about how to become a volunteer here.

Linking Learning to the Arts

UNCW faculty members are able to request tickets to bring their students to UNCW Presents performances through our Linking Learning to the Arts program. We encourage faculty members to use our Linking Learning to the Arts program to support their coursework and expose students to artists and speakers from our UNCW Presents series. Linking Learning to the Arts will provide your students with interesting and exciting opportunities to experience course content beyond the classroom contributing to a more expansive university experience.
