Faculty Resources


Welcome, UNCW faculty! This webpage was developed as a resource hub to assist you in your roles as educators, teachers, and instructors at UNCW. While these resources may also exist in other portals at UNCW, we hope this singular site will provide you answers to questions you may have as you teach and help our students, and will enable you to use myriad useful tools that already exist at UNCW. The Division of Student Affairs is here to support and partner with you, and help you focus on the priorities of teaching, research and service, while we focus on various student-related issues that emerge for our learners. 

If you cannot find the information you are seeking on this site, please let us know so we can consider adding additional information to this portal. Thank you for all you do for UNCW students!

  • Center for Teaching Excellence
    The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is dedicated to assisting the University in fulfilling its commitment to strengthening undergraduate and graduate instruction. CTE recognizes that excellence in teaching is only achieved through teaching scholarship, which involves continuous scrutiny of course content and methods of instruction, knowledge of modern educational techniques and practices, and analysis of the effects of different teaching methods on student learning. Developing new courses and improving existing ones are fundamental to maintaining the integrity and vitality of the University's educational programs. 

  • Faculty/Staff Guide for Managing Distressed or Disruptive Students (a.k.a. the "Teal Folder" or "911 Folder")
    This guide will provide you a range of resources for help managing students who are in need of key resources, or who are distressed or disruptive in your presence. If you would like a physical copy of the file folder, please email Amy Hector.

  • Faculty Notification of Emergencies and Extended Class Absences (Emergency Emails) 
    The purpose of a "Faculty Notification" (also commonly referred to as "emergency emails") is to inform faculty in a timely manner when students will be out of class for an unforeseen emergency or crisis.  Generally, a notification is sent for students who have experienced a situation where they need to leave immediately to address a personal issue, which may include a death in the family, a serious injury, illness or hospitalization. 

    Our office does not excuse absences and we strongly encourage students to connect with faculty as soon as is practical and when they return to determine the best course of action for the class.  The email will always contain language that reminds the student that we do not excuse absences. 

    There is no expectation or requirement that students contact our office or request a faculty notification if they are capable of doing so themselves.  We generally do not notify faculty "after the fact" or if students tell us that they have already contacted the faculty and made them aware of the situation on their own.
