Several new scholarships created opportunities for first-generation students from historically underrepresented communities.

The Latinx population has been the fastest-growing demographic in North Carolina since the 1990s. This is UNCW's largest underrepresented community, with 8% of students identifying as Latinx this past fall.

Donors Luis and Yeraldi Munguia, Gustavo Rodea and Maria Guadalupe Durán '10, '13M, and dedicated staff like Angel Garcia and his wife Abigail lead the way with their scholarship and community support.

UNCW is standing in a pivotal moment.

The university emerged from the pandemic in a strong position, and the commitment and support of the campus and community have uplifted UNCW's Seahawk spirit. Under Chancellor Aswani K. Volety's leadership, we will launch a new strategic plan to help us soar even higher in the future.

Where we go from here and how we get there will continue to be influenced by the active involvement of our alumni, donors and friends.
