    Pros

    Great campus, great facilities, diverse student body. Campus is well connected to the community.

    Cons

    The beach attracts some students who are less committed. They are usually weeded out in the freshman classes, so aim to teach upper levels.

    Pros

    The freedom to explore the ever growing industry of D&I while taking our campus along for an enriching ride via my expertise and commitment to growth related to D&I.

    Cons

    Sate government can be off in their willingness to compensate expertise according to ability. It is prone to pay those who have less actual experience and more degrees and paper work that professes their expertise. No proof needed.

    Advice to Management

    Mindfulness in in all that you say and do. Certainty that what you preach, you practice it. Broaden the lens through which you see your self worth and that of others you may encounter. Be fair and be intentional about humanizing your fellow man at all times.

    I worked at UNC Wilmington part-time

    Pros

    Great environment. Working here was a great learning experience and the staff and faculty were always very friendly.

    Cons

    Very hard to receive fair compensation and get hired full-time. Leadership love the work you do, but don't recognize you for it unless you are faculty or pay you enough to live on. Even if you contribute a lot, it can be years before you go from Temp to Full-time and receive benefits. If you work in marketing, it can be difficult for leadership to recognize the value of what you do and pay you fairly.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the importance of good marketing and value the skills of your employees through fair compensation.
