Coastal Carolina University has named professor Nelljean Rice as founding dean of University College, according to a news release from the university.
University College is the newly created home for First Year Experience, Academic Centers, nondeclared majors, Interdisciplinary Studies majors, Bridge Program, Core Curriculum and Lifelong Learning and various continuing education and outreach efforts.
"The creation of this college follows months of discussion with deans, the faculty senate and the board of trustees," said CCU Provost Robert Sheehan. "It represents an effort to ensure that every student who enrolls at Coastal Carolina University is embedded within the administrative oversight of a dean and the curricular and appeals processes that are found in any college."
