CCU board of trustees is one step closer to naming a new president.

The Coastal Carolina University board of trustees is one step closer to naming the University’s next president. During a special board meeting on Sept. 22, H. Delan Stevens, vice chairman of the board and chair of CCU’s Presidential Search Committee, shared the following statement:

“We have had an intense and thorough search for the next president of Coastal Carolina University. This search culminated in several rounds of vetting. I believe based on these sessions, that one candidate has risen to the top of our deliberations.

“Therefore, I move that the Compensation Committee of the board of trustees along with our Board Chairman William Biggs negotiate contractual terms of employment with candidate E to be the next president of Coastal Carolina University with the goal of having a contract ready for board approval as soon as practical.”

The board announced in December 2018 that the University’s president, David A. DeCenzo, would retire in June 2021. He has served as CCU’s president since 2007.
