Watson College of Education

The Watson College of Education offers high-quality programs, extensive field experiences and applied learning opportunities, strong ties to partners in the community and region, a collaborative learning environment and an unwavering commitment to our students' success. As an example of its many engagement initiatives, Watson has built a strong partnership with D.C. Virgo Preparatory Academy in Wilmington, connecting UNCW faculty, staff and students with the school in an intentional, impactful way. Watson alumni have a strong track record of professional success, highly sought after by early learning centers, schools, community colleges, universities, businesses and corporate settings. 

By directing your gift to the Watson College of Education Excellence Fund during Seahawks Give, your contributions can provide support for one or more of the many priority programs and initiatives across the College. 

Your gift can also provide critical funding for:

  • Students who are completing field experiences and internshipsas the time-commitment required makes it difficult to continue working jobs outside of the program
  • Professional development opportunities for UNCW students and faculty as well as educators and professionals across our many partnerships
  • Technology such as digital learning tools and software, laptops, iPads, research tools and other important resources that can be used in both classroom and virtual learning environments to better meet the needs of all students
  • Community outreach programs like the Jr. Seahawk Academy that provides STEM learning experiences and mentoring for middle grades students in our community, with a focus on students from economically disadvantaged and underrepresented populations
