Office of the Dean of Students

Citizenship & Civic Engagement

I demonstrate honorable citizenship through acts of civic engagement.

"Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country."

-- President John F. Kennedy

UNCW students are encouraged to get involved in local, regional and national events. Simple ways to do this: read the newspaper and have conversations, vote in the SGA elections and watch the news. Join a student organization. Register to vote. Attend events and movies on campus. Talk to others about your experience. Learn about your local government. Attend the University/Community Relations Task Force to see how UNCW and the Wilmington community work together. Volunteer for a political candidate. Put yourself out there! Be in the know!
