Message from Chancellor Sartarelli re. UNCW Statement: June 29, 2020

Monday, June 29, 2020

Dear Seahawk Community:

Below is a copy of a statement being issued today:

Over the past several weeks, many of you have inquired about the status of a UNCW faculty member, Dr. Mike Adams, in light of the public attention generated by comments he made on his personal social media channels. We can now share the update that after a discussion with Chancellor Sartarelli, Dr. Adams has decided to retire from UNCW, effective August 1, 2020. We will have no further comment on this matter at this time, but we plan to share an update later this week regarding how we hope to move forward as a university community.


Jose V. Sartarelli
