About Us

The Office of Military Affairs, housed within UNCW's Office of the Provost, collaborates with academic and university departments to provide support services to military-affiliated students transitioning into UNCW.

The office was established in March 2016, with Bill Kawczynski named as director. It is responsible for developing and coordinating support services to help military-affiliated students achieve their academic and career goals and for advocating for student veterans, active duty personnel and dependents.

“UNCW has a longstanding tradition of working with our military community,” Kawczynski said. “We don’t just want to be ‘military friendly,’ but rather ‘military supportive’ in every possible way.”
