UNCW celebrates installation of Chancellor Sartarelli

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - UNCW celebrated the installation of Chancellor Jose V. Sartarelli Thursday morning on the Hoggard Hall Lawn.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community were invited to attend the event.

While the ceremony was Thursday, the Chancellor has been hard at work for the last few months.

"I'm very proud of what we've done so far." said Chancellor Sartarelli, "Our diversity percentage is up to 18%, and we'd like to see that continue to go higher. I think things are gelling together quite well."

He is also a big believer in scholarships, and wants to see robust scholarships attract high-achieving students.

Guests were also invited to attend a picnic on King Hall Lawn and Campus Commons after the ceremony.
