Building a Better Wilmington: Giving and Volunteering in the Port City was conceptualized and overseen by Dr. Jeffrey L. Brudney, Betty and Dan Cameron Family Distinguished Professor of Innovation in the Nonprofit Sector at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW). The film was produced by undergraduate and graduate students at UNCW. The film features interviews with individuals from many walks of life who are actively involved in enriching the Wilmington community. Volunteers from local nonprofit organizations, musicians, activists, and community leaders discuss topics such as the personal rewards of involvement, how to get involved, and the importance of giving and volunteering in Wilmington. The film aims to encourage student film making and to inspire participation in the community.

The Model United Nations Associations (MUNA) is devoted to the simulation of international politics.Through Model UN, students can develop their political and diplomatic skills, show leadership, engage in negotiation, learn to write resolutions, improve their public speaking, and make friends around the United States and the world.

The North Carolina Student Legislature (NCSL), founded in 1937, is the oldest active student legislature in the country. More than 5,000 students from more than 25 public and private universities, colleges, technical schools, and community colleges across the state have experienced the educational opportunity offered by the NCSL.

The Student Government Association's mission is to assure that student opinion and activities are an integral part of the University community, to insure the development of freedom of thought, the exchange of ideas, and guarantee the rights and privileges of the students at this University.

The Office of Student Leadership and Engagement creates learning opportunities where UNCW students can enhance their desire to engage in their communities, build their capacity to lead, and increase their aspiration to serve others.

University Learning Center

The University Learning Center is committed to being a vital part of UNCW students' education. Our academic support services are based on the principle that quality learning takes place when peers work collaboratively to develop knowledge and build skills. The University Learning Center provides students a learning environment and experience that differs from the classroom; we focus on high-quality individual, small-group and large-group student-centered and student-lead learning.
