Office of Student Leadership and Engagement
The Office of Student Leadership and Engagement creates opportunities in which UNCW students and fraternities & sororities can engage in their communities and serve others, practice leadership and inspire positive change, act congruently with their values, and celebrate excellence. Opportunities to engage include but are not limited to leadership conferences and workshops, weekly service projects with nonprofits in Wilmington, large-scale service programs and Community Service Trips during semester breaks, and membership in a nationally recognized fraternity or sorority. We also celebrate students’ engagement through the Cornerstone Awards and the Dub Awards. By engaging in programs with the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement, students will:
Understand the relevance and importance of engagement in their community
Develop their capacities to practice leadership for positive change
Develop an awareness of their own values, while also learning to respect the diverse perspectives of others
Increase their awareness, understanding, and ownership of community needs and social responsibility
Make meaning of their experiences in order to utilize their skills and abilities in myriad contexts
Celebrate their own and others’ learning and development
