@UNCWilmington July 12


My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: UNC Wilmington

Location: Wilmington NC

I have four sons the two oldest graduated from UNC Wilmington. One of those two has a birthday today. The growth of UNC Wilmington has been remarkable considering it has only been a 4 year institution since 1963.

As the crow flies the university does not sit far from the coast. See photo below with Wrightsville Beach at the top of photo.

Prior to becoming a 4 year college there were some neat milestones in UNCW history as it transitioned from Wilmington College to a 2 year school to become the 4 year campus it is today located on College Road.

UNCW

By an act of the General Assembly of North Carolina, Wilmington College in 1963 became a senior college with a four-year curriculum, authorized to offer the bachelor’s degree.

In 1968 by vote of the Board of Trustees of the University of North Carolina, with subsequent approval by the North Carolina Board of Higher Education, and by an act of the General Assembly of North Carolina, Wilmington College became the University of North Carolina at Wilmington the name it holds today.  The University today is part of the 17 campuses that make up The University of North Carolina.
