Excellence, integrity, diversity and innovation have long shaped the student-centered learning experience at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. These values, along with our ever-present dedication to community engagement, serve as the foundation for our strategic plan, developed by the campus community to guide our growth through 2022.* Inside this publication, you will discover the many ways our strategic plan focuses on the distinctive qualities that make UNC Wilmington one of the best institutions of higher education in the nation.
