Sustainability

Students celebrate Earth Day

As North Carolina’s coastal university, the University of North Carolina Wilmington takes great pride in maintaining the natural allure and resources of the local area for all. UNCW defines sustainability as individual efforts made by the community to ensure the unique resources and benefits of today's world will remain for future generations. We strive to weave these ideals into the university’s mission of teaching, scholarship and service in a way that demands economic vitality, social equity and environmental stewardship.
