Community Standards

Involvement & Service

I embrace community by active involvement and service.

"You must be the change you want to see in the world."

-- Mahatma Gandhi

UNCW is a unique community held together by the active service of our students. The Cornerstone Pledge is an affirmation of this proud tradition. Whether students are volunteering their time and effort on campus or in the Wilmington area, they make a conscious effort to better their community on a daily basis.

UNCW students continually create and maintain organizations that aim to improve the quality of life on- and off-campus. Many regional, national, and global organizations depend upon the leadership skills, contributions and volunteerism of UNCW students. Our students realize the great potential they have to impact our society by their involvement and take seriously the responsibility to serve their community.
