During the Coastal Carolina University board of trustees meeting on Aug. 7, the board approved granting authority to the administration to enter into four-month leases, each with renewable terms, with off-campus student housing properties near campus, effective Aug. 15 through Dec. 14, 2020.

These additional beds will be used by students residing in main campus residential housing who test positive for COVID-19 and are required to isolate.

The board also reviewed and reaffirmed the University’s mission statement. In addition, the board revised its bylaws to include designation of new board committees and refinement of trustee roles in the hiring of senior-level employees. An update of the full document is forthcoming on the University board of trustees’ website.

The board also recognized the service of six retiring faculty members. It approved distinguished professor emeritus status for Karen Aguirre, Susan Libes, Carol Megehee, John Mortimer, and Samuel Wathen; and distinguished librarian emeritus status for Margaret Fain.
