Together, we’ve leveraged our unique strengths to chart our future by raising


... and we're not done!

Scroll or click below to explore how The Campaign for UNCW is expanding how Seahawks think global and act local:

Responsible management and stewardship are issues that are not unique to our coastal region — they’re global concerns. 

During the Global Marine Science Summit, UNCW works with international coastal communities to identify solutions to challenges we are all facing.

The Corbett Human Anatomy Laboratory is the first of its kind in southeastern North Carolina and coming to Veterans Hall in the fall of 2023, thanks to private and grant support.

Along with program enhancements, the lab will serve as the cornerstone of high-quality student preparation and post-graduate healthcare programs.

Faculty Fellowships, funded by donors, help UNCW recruit and retain top-notch talent.

These awards support faculty research, publications in international journals and experiences that prepare our students to meet global business demands.

Career exploration and making connections with alumni are goals of the donor-funded Washington D. Seahawks program and the top reasons why students loved participating.

The learning outcomes of the April 2022 trip to D.C. included skills assessments, gaining networking experience that can build life-long relationships and connecting classroom takeaways with real-world career opportunities.

Gifts of all sizes help us realize our greatest potential

86% of campaign gifts are less than $250, and each one adds up to make a big impact.

Figures reported are reflective of gifts received July 1, 2015 - August 31, 2022.

Four student-led crowdfunding projects have raised nearly $10K for beach clean-ups, solar panels on campus and immersive research.

Hundreds of employers expand donors’ impact! More than $790,000 in matching gifts have been received during the campaign.

Provisions today create endless possibilities for tomorrow. E.L. White Society donors are responsible for 16% of the $101 million committed.

Alumni also help UNCW continue to provide stories like no other, with 13,034 graduates making more than 61,000 gifts.

What's next?

It is our confidence in our alumni and donors, and our shared commitment to a powerful student-centered experience, that has emboldened us to stretch the campaign goal to $125 million.

The UNCW experience is truly like no other and together we can make it more accessible and affordable for future Seahawks."
