Message from Chancellor Volety: New Website Is Live

We are proud to announce the official launch of the newly redesigned website! The new site enhances the user experience and reflects UNCW’s dynamic and innovative approach to education. It also plays an important role in communicating our story and helping various audiences discover what UNCW offers. 

As digital communications have evolved to be the primary source of communications, marketing and business operations, the university needed a website that reflects best practices and effectively serves our prospective and current students, their parents and families, faculty, staff, alumni, community partners, and other audiences. 

The design showcases the university’s connection to the coast and its commitment to teaching, research and community engagement through vibrant images and storytelling. A few of the new design’s highlights include:  

  • Program finder: Prospective students can explore degree options easily.  
  • Accessibility: Focuses on providing equal access to people with diverse abilities.
  • Modern, engaging design: Highlights UNCW’s unique brand and stories. 
  • Dynamic features: Allows more efficiency and flexibility for presenting content and sharing it across multiple pages.
  • Streamlined, data-driven, user-focused navigation.
  • Enhanced processes to maintain quality and provide support for content managers. 

The Offices of University Relations and Information Technology Services coordinated the web redesign project and worked closely with academic units and other administrative divisions in collaboration with Stamats, a higher education integrated marketing company hired to assist in the process. The new website is the culmination of many months and long work hours from our redesign team and campus partners. We commend the team and campus stakeholders for their tireless efforts to launch this massive undertaking.
