Dear Seahawk Community,

UNCW’s strategic commitment to excellence, globalization and community engagement continued to inspire the university’s achievements in March. U.S. News & World Report placed five UNCW graduate programs on its list of 2019 Best Graduate Schools. A group of first-year data science students advised by Professor Jim Blum in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics earned one of eight team spots in the SAS Global Forum Student Symposium.

The university also announced a dual degree partnership with China’s Chongqing University of Arts and Sciences. UNCW was one of only eight U.S. higher education institutions approved for such a collaboration. The Watson College of Education finalized a community partnership with the New Hanover County Schools for Wilmington’s first K-8 year-round public school.

The UNC System Board of Governors and President Margaret Spellings visited our campus to learn more about UNCW’s commitment to growth with quality. UNCW’s new master’s program in film studies was approved during the Board of Governors’ meeting.

Now that spring is here, take time to visit our campus, walk among the flowers and trees that are blooming and enjoy the spring sports underway.

Go Seahawks!
