UNA-USA Coastal Carolina Chapter was chartered in 1989. Virginia Sherman, the first president, organized the chapter with other founding members at Plantation Village, a retirement community near Wilmington, North Carolina. Coastal Carolina Chapter serves the Cape Fear area.  For 25 years, under the leadership of a volunteer board, the chapter has provided ways for the local community to engage with global issues. Coastal Carolina Chapter members are a group of students, educators and concerned citizens who have a shared vision of a World where human rights are honored and global issues are addressed by diplomacy. The chapter sponsors programs for the general public and are advocates with Congress and other policy makers on current UN issues. Supporting the UNCW Model UNA is a priority for the Chapter. Additional financial aid is provided to students so that they can participate in conferences that simulate UN problem solving situations.  Funds are also raised for scholarships presented to UNCW students twice a year.
