Chancellor Bill Sederburg photo


I am honored to serve as the Interim Chancellor of the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I come to this role after serving as president of two universities and as state commissioner of higher education. My role here at UNCW is to assist the campus in continuing to build upon its standing as one of America’s most distinguished regional state universities. I am also eager to support the search for a new, permanent chancellor to lead UNCW to a future of even greater successes.

UNC Wilmington has steadily built a reputation of excellence, with an emphasis on engaged learning and a student-centered approach to the academic experience. UNCW’s accomplished and dedicated body of faculty and staff care deeply about students and their ability to apply classroom and field learning to real-world issues of local, national and global significance.

UNCW’s admission standards are among the highest in North Carolina, annually attracting over 14,000 students for the 1,900 positions available in its freshman class. The word is out that UNCW is the place to be!

I have personally reached the same conclusion: This is the place to be. I look forward to contributing to UNCW’s positive future. If I can assist you in any manner, please allow me the pleasure. My email address is
