Leadership Enhancement
and Administrative Development

LEAD UNCW is an eight-part series designed specifically to assist senior administrators as they navigate the complex issues they face as members of the university administration. Each year, a new cohort of nominated campus leaders completes eight half-day programs, culminating in a graduation ceremony for successful candidates. 

While LEAD is typically offered as a face-to-face program, the 2020-2021 modules will be offered virtually.

Who should be nominated?

LEAD UNCW is designed for campus leaders (including AVCs, Department Chairs, Directors, etc.) who are either new to UNCW or new to their leadership role. If you think the LEAD program would be right for you, contact your division leaders so that you can be nominated for the 2021-22 cohort.

When are nominations accepted?

The AVC of Human Resources calls for LEAD nominations from UNCW leadership in June of each year. Nominations for the 2021-2022 cohort will open next summer.
