Programs and Events
Throughout the school year, students have the opportunity to participate in various programs and events that promote Community Standards at UNCW. These are fun and educational programs, as well as ways that UNCW students can give back to their community.
Dear University Faculty and Staff,
We are very excited about the tenth year of the House Calls program developed by the Office of Housing and Residence Life in conjunction with the Office of the Dean of Students, and we are asking for your help. House Calls is a program that involves faculty and staff interacting with students in the residence halls. This program is a one hour event wherein groups of faculty and staff members walk through the residential areas, knocking on students’ doors, and checking in with them to see how the first semester is progressing. Through this interaction, faculty and staff have the opportunity to introduce themselves and engage students in conversations. This will offer students an opportunity to comment on their experience at UNCW as well as a chance to ask questions about current campus issues or academic interests. Programs similar to House Calls have been conducted on campuses across the country, and they have resulted in positive feedback from students, faculty and staff.
House Calls are scheduled to take place on in the late afternoon of Wednesday, October 7. Participants will meet in assigned residence halls for a brief training session at 4pm before being assigned to a floor to visit in the residence hall. The program will conclude at 5pm. This will be a great opportunity for faculty and staff members to engage residential students in conversations about the Synergy common reading program, to follow up on items discussed in academic sessions prior to Convocation, and to connect with students about their academic progress as we move into the second half of the first semester.
We hope that you will join us in this exciting opportunity to further our students’ learning and development in the residence halls. If you are interested in volunteering to participate in and want to learn more about this program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or x21552 by October 2. Upon volunteering, we will provide you with more detailed information about the event and your responsibilities including notification of which residence hall you will be visiting for the program.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you for the House Calls program.Warmest Regards,
Residence Coordinator – Seahawk Landing
Assistant Dean of Students
