Naming Opportunities for the Spadoni College of Education

Quick Facts

  • CCU is a host institution for the South Carolina Teaching Fellows Program. This scholarship program is for qualified South Carolina high school students who wish to pursue a degree in education and a career in the state’s public schools following graduation. It provides a $24,000 scholarship/loan over four years for up to 200 outstanding high school seniors.

  • During their freshman year, education majors participate in an immersive classroom experience. These students spend four weeks in Title I schools and gain first-hand experiences in the classroom in collaboration with cooperating teachers. This unique experience allows our students to enter the classroom earlier than usual for an education major.

  • Through the CCU Early Childhood Development and Literacy Center, undergraduate and graduate students are provided clinical experiences embedded into their literacy coursework. The center also engages in community outreach to support students who need additional literacy instruction through after-school programs and one-on-one tutoring initiatives.

  • The Educator-in-Residence program provides candidates the opportunity to live in Georgetown and participate in a yearlong residency in the Georgetown school district. This program allows for comprehensive classroom teaching experiences that will culminate in the spring internship.

“Attending Coastal Carolina University has provided me with an amazing graduate school experience.

I am thrilled that I chose to attend CCU over the various online programs I was previously researching. I have been very impressed by the level of knowledge and support the Coastal staff offers their students. They have made the entire process seamless. Part of the reason I decided to attend CCU was the offering of the hybrid master’s degree program in educational leadership. The variation of class meetings provides me the opportunity to find the right balance between work, school and home life. The professors display a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience, and offer their guidance and support to each of us in our cohort every step of the way.”

About the I'M IN 2 Endowment Campaign

Coastal Carolina University’s endowment ensures that the University moves forward in its goals to recruit and retain the best and brightest students and faculty and provides access to a comprehensive liberal arts education.

The University’s ongoing I’M IN endowment campaign is designed to bolster this ever-important fund. The focus of the campaign is to increase student scholarships and support academic excellence. Phase one of the campaign raised more than $22 million; the goal of phase two is to raise an additional $20 million by 2023.

“The tremendous success of the I’M IN campaign is a direct result of our alumni, donors and friends recognizing and embracing the forward trajectory of Coastal Carolina University,” said CCU President David A. DeCenzo. “We are extremely thankful for everyone’s generosity and commitment to the University. The continuation of the campaign via I’M IN 2 is paramount as we look to provide financial support for current and future students who seek to earn a comprehensive liberal arts education at Coastal Carolina University.”
