The office of community engagement at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is a key sponsor of the 2022 FlowILM event. UNCW’s Office of Community Engagement and Applied Learning is committed to uplifting our faculty, staff, students and community partners to support a thriving future for southeastern North Carolina, our surrounding region, nation, and the world.
The mission of OCEAL is to create opportunities for faculty and students to engage in community-based learning and scholarship; and to support, leverage, and build applied learning activities across campus aimed at achieving student success.
The Office also acts as the front door for community-based organizations and government institutions seeking University support to address unmet community needs. Our outreach units provide access to inclusive and diverse leadership and learning experiences, cultural programming, and community-building opportunities. We look forward to working with you and for you in the near future.
