Chancellor Sartarelli

March 2016

Message from Chancellor Jose V. Sartarelli

Dear Seahawk Community,

Several UNCW achievements during the month of March inspired tremendous Seahawk pride on campus and in our community. The university earned new accolades for affordability and military-friendly programs. We welcomed business icons like Jerry Greenfield (co-founder, Ben & Jerry’s) and Kelly S. King (chairman and CEO, BB&T Corp.) to campus for lively discussions with students and faculty. At the Honors College Recognition and Awards Program, we celebrated students who earned prestigious national fellowships, research scholarships and other academic accolades.

As I’m sure you know, the men’s basketball team, led by Colonial Athletic Association Coach of the Year Kevin Keatts, captured the CAA tournament title and competed in the first round of the NCAA tournament against Duke University. Although the final score of the game didn’t go our way (so close!), we’re very proud of our Seahawks!

We concluded March with my installation ceremony (earlier today, in fact), and I welcome this opportunity to thank the faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends and special guests who made the event a memorable experience for me. I am honored to lead this great university as we work together to make UNC Wilmington an even more successful institution, recognized nationally and internationally, for excellence in everything it does, for its global mindset and for its engagement with the community and the world.

Go Seahawks!
