The Wall Fellows program was initiated in 1993 by the late Conway businessman Craig Wall Jr., CCU business Dean Bill Baxley and Myrtle Beach businessman Clay Brittain Jr. in response to the need for graduates with strong leadership, critical thinking and interpersonal skills. The program teaches leadership development skills across all four colleges of the university with a select group of students from business, humanities, sciences and education included.
Students are chosen for the Wall Fellows program through a competitive application process. The teaching focus of the program is contained in a rigorous three credit-hour per semester course which covers specific nontraditional areas including interpersonal and communication skills, ethics, business etiquette and cross cultural business skills. Fellows are also expected to complete a full-time, six-month internship outside of the area during the program, as well as an international experience between their junior and senior years.
Since the program was initiated, Wall Fellows have had internships at major companies in New York, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Washington D.C., London, Barcelona, Mainz (Germany) and Brussels.
