Friends of UNCW
The Friends of UNCW, a volunteer organization formed in December 1963 to help Wilmington College (now UNCW) increase the library's holdings from 11,000 volumes to a minimum of 50,000 volumes – a requirement at the time for accreditation as a four-year institution. The Friends met that goal and have been steadfast UNCW supporters for more 50 years.
The organization's current contributions include supporting a merit scholarship and annually funding special projects based on proposals from UNCW faculty and staff.

On these boards I've learned that: We have one of the top biology and marine biology programs in the world. We have a business school that is focused on the community, economics and entrepreneurship. We have an education program that is doing research into what really works in the classroom.
My job on these boards is to be a part of keeping the university vibrant and on the map.
