Coastal Carolina University Mission

Coastal Carolina University’s mission was revised in 2007 with the input of students, faculty, staff, alumni and board members. It served Coastal Carolina University effectively until the institution sought to capitalize on the exceptional skills, national and international reputation, and dedicated regional focus of its marine science program to advance the institution’s first doctoral program and to enable educational specialist degree programs to develop. As such, the mission statement was revised in 2014 to accommodate a minor change in wording but expansion of the focus of the institution as a whole to offer doctoral programs in selective fields. It was approved by the Coastal Carolina University Board of Trustees on July 19, 2014, and by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education on February 5, 2015. As a testament to its durability and fit among institutional stakeholders, the rest of the mission statement remained as it had been developed in 2007.
