July 16, 2007

Coastal Carolina University President David DeCenzo has appointed Darla Domke-Damonte to coordinate the university's strategic planning process.

Domke-Damonte, associate professor of management and International Programs Liaison for the E. Craig Sr. Wall College of Business Administration, will coordinate stakeholder involvement in reviewing and updating the university's strategic plan.

"This process will be transparent, inclusive and consultative," says Domke-Damonte. "The goal is to develop a unified commitment from all stakeholders to the future vision and mission of Coastal Carolina University as well as a framework for continuous improvement within the university." Her special assignment is a one-year appointment.

She has been instrumental in establishing exchange programs with universities abroad, particularly in Germany and, most recently, China. She has served as faculty adviser to Coastal's Society for the Advancement of Management (SAM) club and she received the Student Affairs Division Award in 2003.

Domke-Damonte, who is conversant in seven languages, earned a Ph.D. in strategic management from Florida State University, a master's degree in international business from the University of South Carolina and a bachelor's degree from the American University, where she graduated magna cum laude with a double major in Russian and communications media.
