On Dec. 6, the University of North Carolina Wilmington received a $10 million gift commitment from alumnus David Congdon, ’78, and his wife, Helen.
This represents the largest outright gift commitment in university history. With it, UNCW will establish the "David S. Congdon School of Supply Chain, Business Analytics and Information Systems," supporting these programs within the Cameron School of Business. The Computer Information Systems Building will also be rededicated as David S. Congdon Hall.

When Justin Borges '14 first stepped foot on the campus of UNCW, he found himself in unfamiliar territory. For the first time in his life, the New York native was living on his own, away from everyone and everything he knew. What he found was a new home that offered him support and helped shape him into the person he is today.
“UNCW is an incredible community with people from all walks of life,” Borges said. “It’s a place that changes every life that ever steps foot down Chancellor’s Walk. It’s second to none.”
