CHHS Dean Charles Hardy

Dear Faculty, Students, Staff and Community Partners:

Thank you for all the feedback on the pilot issue of CHHS Talk, E-Newsletter! It was encouraging to hear from so many of you about both the style and content of our e-newsletter. Fall semester is up and running, and as I know you’ve noticed, UNCW has the largest student population in the history of the institution – more than 15,700 students! As you are also aware, the CHHS has reached a milestone this academic year with over 3,000 majors!

September is a busy month for CHHS and the leadership team has attempted to capture the highlights below. Indeed, the overall purpose of CHHS Talk is to remind ourselves of why we do what we do. That is to say, this e-newsletter is the CHHS being its best self!  It is our hope that you find joy while reading the CHHS Talk. Please send your feedback and future stories to
