Board of Visitors

 Board of Visitors FY18

The UNCW Board of Visitors consists of over 50 volunteers appointed by the chancellor. Members serve as ambassadors for the university by helping to establish and strengthen UNCW’s connections with prospective donors and high-ability students, as well as legislators and other governmental leaders. A focus of this advocacy group is to expand the university's influence across the state, particularly in the Charlotte, Triad and Triangle metropolitan areas.

Board of Visitors meetings are held twice during each academic year and provide valuable insight for members by featuring informative presentations from students, faculty and staff about the strategic direction of the university and its programs.
