“We are living in a very interconnected world,” UNCW Chancellor Jose “Zito” Sartarelli says in the accompanying video.
Sartarelli outlines relationships the Marine Sciences program has with major universities in Canada, the UK, France, China and South Africa. He says he hopes to double the 1,000 students UNCW currently sends overseas by next year.
“I’d like to provide for all of our students … an opportunity to go overseas,” says Sartarelli, himself a native of Brazil. “I think it’s a maturing process when you do that.”
