The University of North Carolina Wilmington looks forward to welcoming students, faculty, staff, alumni and honored guests to Trask Coliseum on March 31, 2023 to celebrate the installation of Chancellor Aswani K. Volety. During the ceremony, Chancellor Volety will share a vision for UNCW's future that builds on the success that generations of Seahawks have soared toward since our institution was founded in 1947.

For Chancellor Volety, returning to UNCW feels like coming home. He is excited and honored to lead this great university, and has spent his first months on the job meeting with many people on campus and in the community to get reacquainted with UNCW. 

"I plan to continue listening to and learning from UNCW students, faculty and staff for as long as I serve as chancellor. Faculty and staff have created a student-centered experience at UNCW that is like no other. I will continue to champion that commitment."
