Administration Rosemary DePaolo Chancellor Dr. Rosemary DePaolo became chancellor and chief executive officer of the University of North Carolina Wilmington in July 2003. During her tenure, the university has attained national prominence as a model for teaching, research, and service. Chancellor DePaolo has led the university to greatness by developing strategies and processes to recruit and retain the highest quality of diverse faculty and staff, attract the highest quality of students, reduce faculty-to-student ratios, improve retention and graduation rates, provide the buildings necessary to support a world class campus environment, and encourage more private philanthropic support than ever. She has overseen the construction and renovation of $250 million in public and private supported projects resulting in 15 new or renovated buildings. A $30.1 million state-of-the art nursing building is under construction and the third phase of new campus housing, as well as the first parking deck on campus, opened in August 2009. The additional housing brought UNCW to its goal of 40 percent of its undergraduate students living on campus. Private support has increased dramatically under her leadership. Generous supporters have allowed UNCW to set fundraising records for four years in a row. During this period, donors gave the university more than $30 million to support scholarships, professorships, academics, faculty research, athletics, student life experiences, and more, resulting in an increase in the university’s endowment by more than 50 percent. Under her guidance, UNCW achieved Millennial Campus designation of several sites to be used for public/private research ventures capitalizing on the university’s strengths in marine biotechnology, among others. She has encouraged the university community to work closely with government, health, education, non-profit and business leaders in the region through a number of formal and informal collaborations, including a recently established partnership with the Wilmington Housing Authority to provide educational services at one of their community centers. Chancellor DePaolo is actively involved in a wide range of civic activities, including service on a number of boards. These include serving on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee for the North Carolina Chamber, the state’s largest and most influential business group, ex-officio member of the Greater Wilmington Chamber of Commerce, chair of the Southeastern Advisory Committee for Biotechnology of the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, and Executive Board of the North Carolina Campus Compact. A nationally recognized champion for higher education, Chancellor DePaolo served on a Higher Education Cabinet established by the New York Times and the Chronicle of Higher Education. She has served on the Board of Directors of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and the Association of American Colleges and Universities, and is also a current member of the Colonial Athletic Association’s Council of Presidents. UNCW has been praised by various publications for quality, affordability, and innovation. U.S. News & World Report has consistently ranked the university as one of the top 10 public master’s universities in the South, and Forbes placed UNCW second among best public universities in North Carolina. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance listed UNCW as one of the top 25 “Best Values” among public universities in the nation and one of the top three in North Carolina. Before arriving in Wilmington, Chancellor DePaolo was president of Georgia College & State University. She holds a bachelor of arts degree from Queens College of the City University of New York and a master of arts and a doctorate in 18th century English literature from Rutgers University. A native of Long Island, N.Y., she is married to Fred Wharton, a retired professor of English.

Kelly Mehrtens Director of Athletics Kelly Mehrtens is completing her third year as UNC Wilmington’s Director of Athletics with a track record of outstanding leadership and success in collegiate athletic administration. Under Mehrtens’ watch, UNCW’s student-athletes have continued to achieve academic and athletic excellence, while also demonstrating a dedicated commitment to community service through the school’s active Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Academically, all of UNCW’s 19 intercollegiate teams finished above the multi-year score of 925 in the NCAA’s most recent APR report, and several were honored by the respective governing bodies for their work in the classroom in 2008-09. On top of that, the Seahawks have won six Colonial Athletic Association Championships over the last two years, including the school’s first men’s tennis title in the spring of 2009.

Prior to her appointment at UNCW on July 2, 2007, Mehrtens compiled an impressive administrative resume at four institutions after record-setting days as an All-American student-athlete at the University of Alabama. A native of Panama City, Fla., Mehrtens previously spent almost four years as associate director of athletics and senior women’s administrator at the University of Kansas. As a key member of KU’s senior administrative team, she oversaw 15 men’s and women’s sports with operating budgets totaling more than $15 million, serving as a highly-efficient manager of high profile revenue and non-revenue sports programs. In addition to handling numerous senior administrative duties in Lawrence, the 46-year-old Mehrtens also established a successful track record in the fund-raising realm. She played a key role on KU’s fundraising team that has racked up $19 million in facility improvements in three years. In addition, she helped the Jayhawks increase their annual giving in athletics from $5 million in 2003 to $12 million. Mehrtens has truly been an advocate of the student-athlete. She developed KU’s Student-Athlete Development/Leadership Program and worked with the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee to raise $1 million to help fund women’s sports facilities. Prior to joining the staff at Kansas, Mehrtens worked in a similar capacity at the University of Illinois. She oversaw all operations for men’s basketball, women’s basketball, volleyball, men’s track and field, women’s track and field, men’s golf, women’s golf, women’s swimming and softball for the Illini.

In addition, junior Morgan Walters and freshman Kelsey Eddinger were named Second-Team All-CAA, and Eddinger was named to the All-State team by the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association.

The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 12 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 12 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 20 NCAA post-graduate scholars In 2008-09, the CAA had more than 1,700 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference ranked in the top 10 in the nation in 12 of its 23 sports in the latest APR report released by the NCAA. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes six of the nation’s top 25 media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Atlanta (8), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA currently sponsors 23 sports with the addition of a 12-team football league in 2007 and women’s rowing in 2009. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field and wrestling.

The Athletic Academic Support Program provides a variety of services for all the university’s student-athletes. The program offers academic counseling and support to help student-athletes successfully balance the demands of their athletic and academic schedules. Progress reports monitoring class attendance and test results and accessing tutorial needs are completed two times each semester by professors of classes in which UNCW student-athletes are enrolled. The University College is designed to assist students during their academic careers, with special emphasis on the first and second years of study when they are expected to work toward fulfilling the basic studies requirements as outlined in the university catalog. The assistant athletic director for academics meets with student-athletes on a regular basis to assist in their academic success and monitor their progress toward a degree. Each freshman is assigned to an advisor for personal assistance in selecting courses, maintaining required scholastic records and planning a complete University College educational program. The program’s primary objective is to assist students toward completing basic studies. Several other programs are provided for academic support at UNCW, including the Writing/Reading Place, the Learning Center, the Math Lab, tutorial services, Disability Services, personal and career counseling, study hall and a laptop program. The Writing/Reading Place offers one-on-one tutoring for any academic writing assignment. Tutors help students get started with a paper, offer aid in the development and organization of the project and provide strategies that help at each stage of the composing process. Computers for word processing are available in Randall Library. The Learning Center helps all students develop skills necessary to become successful, independent learners through tutorial assistance, supplemental instruction, study skills workshops and individual consultations. Students desiring help with any level of math can find it at the Math Lab. Staffed by faculty and students, the center in Bear Hall takes students on a walk-in basis. Any tutorial assistance from the Writing/Reading Place, the Learning Center and the Math Lab is free and available to all student-athletes.

CHAMPS/Life Skills Meets Student-Athlete Needs To prepare student-athletes for the challenges of life beyond the playing field, UNCW and the NCAA team up in the popular CHAMPS/Life Skills Program. UNCW is currently one of 669 institutions involved in the popular program. The CHAMPS/Life Skills Program is designed to provide student-athletes with the education and the experiences to assist them in bridging the gap between college life and professional life in the work world and to make meaningful contributions to their communities. The CHAMPS/Life Skills Program focuses on five commitment areas viewed as critical to personal growth: (1) Academic Excellence - to support the academic progress of the student-athlete toward intellectual development and graduation. (2) Athletic Excellence - to build philosophical foundations for the development of athletic programs that are broadbased, equitable and dedicated to the well-being of the student-athlete. (3) Personal Development - to support the development of a well-balanced lifestyle for the student-athlete, encouraging emotional well-being, personal growth and decision-making skills. (4) Career Development - to encourage each student-athlete to develop and pursue their career and life goals. (5) Service - to engage the student-athlete in service to his or her campus and surrounding communities. The NCAA has worked with its member institutions and educational consultants to create instructional materials and program models to address the needs of today’s student-athletes. Topics such as diversity education, developing sexual responsibility, nutrition, eating disorder prevention and awareness, time management, community service and career development are just some of the areas covered within the curriculum. A freshman seminar course is designed to assist student-athletes in making the transition to college, this seminar focuses on college-level study skills, time management, awareness of available university services, etc. It is open only to entering freshmen and generates two hours of elective credit toward graduation.
