The Office of Student Life coordinates programs, services, and resources that celebrate and nurture diverse environments for all members of the UNW community. Our qualified staff supports international students, students who have grown up living in one or more cultures, and students of color in the areas of academic, cultural, spiritual, and personal growth.

We are unique threads within one story revealing the image of God in each of us.
