CCU board of trustees approve real estate acquisitions, first online degree

Coastal Carolina University's board of trustees voted today to pursue the purchase of two buildings on the east side of U.S. 501.

- The Coastal Science Center building, which the University has subleased for the past five years, currently houses the Departments of Marine Science, Computer Science, and Psychology and Sociology, as well as Printing Services.

- The Prudential Building, a 5,500 square foot structure formerly occupied by Prudential Burroughs & Chapin Realty Inc., houses the University's Department of Human Resources and Equal Opportunity.

The first completely online degree to be offered by Coastal Carolina University, a Bachelor of Science degree in health sciences (BHS), received board approval. This post-entry level program is designed for individuals with associate's degrees or technical certification in the allied health sciences. The BHS distance education degree may be offered as early as the Spring 2011 semester to coincide with the discontinuation of the Medical University of South Carolina's BHS program, the only other online BHS program in the state. Further approval of this degree program must also be obtained from the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education and the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges (SACS).

The board approved tenure for James Everett, the new chair of Coastal Carolina University's Department of Communication. Everett, vice provost and acting dean of arts and sciences at the University of Alaska Southeast, will assume the position at CCU on Aug. 16, 2010. The board also voted to establish the Lawrence B. and Jane P. Clark Endowed Chair in History at Coastal Carolina University. The new history chair will be created in recognition of a gift bequest made by the Clarks to the Coastal Educational Foundation.

The board approved a motion to give increased priority to the construction of the new baseball/softball facility on campus.

The board also approved a motion to conduct a feasibility study to explore adding an additional women's sport or sports at CCU.
