Division of Extended Learning renamed School of Continuing Studies

Coastal Carolina University's Division of Extended Learning and Public Services has been renamed the School of Continuing Studies.

"Gaining school status is a reflection of the growth and the quality of programs we provide," said Peter Balsamo, dean of the school. "The name change also reflects a similar trend at universities across the nation which have continuing education programs that coordinate and administer degree programs."

Richard Weldon has been named assistant dean of the School of Continuing Studies. His responsibilities include overseeing Coastal's Higher Education Center in Myrtle Beach and its Georgetown campus. Weldon had been director of continuing education and external services for Coastal's E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration.

The School of Continuing Studies is a comprehensive continuing education operation, managing programs such as the award-winning Lifelong Learning Society, the Bachelor's of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (BAIS) degree, professional development workshops and seminars, specialized technologies certification, contract training, travel-study programs, Coastal Youth Academy, leisure learning, Command Spanish, credit and non-credit distance learning, high school dual credit, and the SuperSonic Summer Youth Program for children.

The School of Continuing Studies is located in the H. Dale Williams Center for Extended Learning, which is on the second floor of the new University Hall on Coastal's campus.
