UNCW ranked 15th on Kiplinger's "Best Value" list

UNCW has received some exciting news to start the New Year! Kiplinger's has ranked UNC Wilmington 15th in the nation as a "Best Value" among public universities.  This is up from 27th in 2011's ranking.  Each year Kiplinger's ranks four year institutions "that deliver a stellar education at an affordable price."

"Providing the highest quality academic experience at the lowest possible cost is a consistent goal for UNCW," said Chancellor Gary L. Miller. "Even in the current economic environment, in which we have experienced significant and sustained state budget reductions over a several-year period, we have steadfastly refused to sacrifice quality. This recognition is a testament to the resolve of our faculty and staff to provide our students with a powerful learning experience."
