Taking Flight

Taking Flight: UNCW

Taking Flight

Taking Flight is a program designed to help graduating undergraduate students prepare for life after graduation. Taking Flight promotes campus events and provides resources that will assist graduating students with their transition from UNCW.

Charged by Vice Chancellor Pat Leonard, Taking Flight was established in August of 2011 and continues to support graduating students with their transition to the post graduate world. 

Taking Flight currently offers a workshop series catered to UNCW Student Leaders. To learn more about the Taking Flight for Student Leaders series, email the Office of Transition Programs at transitions@uncw.edu.


By participating in Taking Flight programs and events, graduating seniors will articulate and make meaning of their UNCW experience. While engaged in Taking Flight workshops, students will make meaning of their personal accomplishments, reflect on their learning experiences and achievements and be prepared to apply them after leaving UNCW, carry forward UNCW values and Seahawk pride, and build affiliation with the institution as future alumni.
