Biography

Casey Woodling, Ph.D., is Director of Academic Outreach and Continuing Education in the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies and Senior Lecturer in Philosophy and Religious Studies. He had the honor to serve as a Fulbright Scholar in Madagascar from 2016 to 2017 where he taught American studies, English, and philosophy at the University of Antananarivo. He also worked with students and teachers at the University of Antsiranana in the northern part of the island. During the Fulbright, he did research on the philosophy, thought, and language of Madagascar. His deep interest in Madagascar began when he and his wife served as Peace Corps Volunteers there from 2007 to 2009. Their primary responsibility was teaching English in the rural village of Ambatofinandrahana. In addition to these experiences in international education and outreach, he has a background in outreach from his days doing outreach and advocacy for the food stamp program with a non-profit in Nashville, TN as a program coordinator. While in Nashville, Woodling also taught philosophy and ethics to students of diverse backgrounds at various institutions in the area. He earned his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Florida. Outside of his work for Coastal, he enjoys spending time with family, playing, coaching, and watching soccer, visiting the beautiful local beaches, and keeping up with world events. His favorite soccer club is FC Barcelona.
