A Statement from CAS Leadership

The College of Arts and Sciences mourn with the victims of racist violence across the United States. We know the names George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. Yet, our society inflicts countless acts of injustice and brutality on black and brown people continually. We do not know how to name them all.  

We share the anger and the hope of those who are protesting racism across America. It must be confronted within our university as well, and it must be confronted by each member of our community: black, brown, and white. There is no middle ground between racism and anti-racism. We must all commit ourselves to confront racist ideologies, sentiments, and actions, if we wish to see UNCW live true to its values of diversity, integrity, and excellence. 

We as chairpersons and directors will lead, teach, research, and serve in ways that address the challenges and the aspirations articulated in this statement and our Chancellor's
